Painted Pebbles

DIY Center Pieces 

 These are pebbles an easy do it yourself project that can brighten up an table, shelf, or flat surface in your home.

Steps:

  1. Go out in nature, near a river or creek, and find smooth and flat pebbles.
  2. Gather paint an brushes. Use small tipped brushes. Oil based or acrylic paint are the best choices. If you are looking for more vibrant colors I would recommend the acrylic.
  3. Search online or in books for a design that you might like, and try your best to copy it.

Tips and Suggestions:

  • The pebbles should be flat and rounded as best as possible.
  • The design isn’t a big deal, and you shouldn’t worry yourself about it.
  • Even if you aren’t good at painting, you can do simple lines, strips, of color, and they will turn out brilliantly.
  • Place the pebbles, when dried, in a decorative bowl to help draw attention to them.

_gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-31643325-1’]);
_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]);

(function() {
var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true;
ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
