You will need the following materials: rocks or pebbles in various shapes and sizes, acrylic paints, brushes, varnish and felt pieces for bottoms of the stones. Creative rock painting designs add fun to traditional Halloween ideas and turn unappealing rocks into personalized and unique gifts.
Make the natural colors of your stones part of your Halloween designs. When paints dry, you can do necessary touching up for fine details. Rock painting designs for Halloween are ideas that have no limits. Choose bats, spider nets, or letters for beautiful and original Halloween decorations. You can paint the Moon and black trees at night, add funny faces or paint scary Halloween creatures. Anything you paint gives a unique character to the rock and turns it into fabulous, low-budget, eco-friendly gift or home decoration.
Once you have completed your painting project, it is a good idea to give your rock a coat of varnish. This makes the stone look finished. The last coat protects your work of art and allow using the decoration for every Halloween night. Two thin coats of varnish are better than one thick application. A small piece of felt underneath is a little detail to prevent the rock from scratching table tops. It adds a final touch to your hand-painted Halloween decorations and completes your rock painting design.
