Easter rocks

A little project that Aaron and I completed last night. Again, using beach rocks. There’s so many things you could make by just reusing materials that you can find outdoors. They’re cute, they would make a nice gift, and they help you bond with the person you’re making them with.

Materials required:

Beach stones, rounded/egg shaped, best if white or light grey

Paint, crafter’s paint from the dollar store works best, and it’s cheap!

Paint brushes, pretty much any kind would do! but you can get some decent ones at the dollar store

Dead grass, hey, it’s what the best nests are made of!

Fake birds, (optional!), I got them from the dollar store, two on a card

Decorative bowl, any old bowl will do. I just got a cheap dollar store bowl with fancy patterns on the side

Imagination! that’s free! or you can probably find some inspiration from Google Images by typing in “Easter Eggs”

A friend 🙂 everything’s better with company.

Have fun making something with your friends this Easter. The best gift is the gift of love & sharing.



Collector

I’ve spent 80% of my summer waking hours at the beach. This has caused me to become somewhat of a collector/hoarder of beach material.

Aaron and I ventured out to the stretch of beach (mostly small-medium sized pebbles, no sand) around Port Harmon, today.
We were scouting for round and egg-shaped rocks. We painted the egg shaped ones tonight for an easter centre-piece project that I’m making for our kitchen table. The rest, well, they went towards this:

I took two different sized salsa jars, cleaned them up, filled them with beach rocks, and tied a bunch of discarded cotton string around the rim so that you don’t see the ridges.

🙂

That’s all I got for today. Hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend.
