Gifts With Bows
These little rock gifts would look great under an outdoor tree as a festive decoration. Begin by painting your rocks with red and green . Once dry you can use gold paint to create the bow. Allow to dry and finish with some clear varnish. You could make a whole collection of these in different colors and even try making a patterned looking wrapping paper.
Tomte painted rock
Gnomes are so cute and festive and it's easy to see why they have become so popular. You'll only need two colors to recreate this idea - red and white. Begin by drawing a hat shape on the top half of the rock. Then you can paint this and add the beard with white paint. Once the beard is done you can draw the legs coming from this and then paint in the stripes. They would also make cute little favors to give out during the holidays.
Christmas Lights Kitty
Cats love Christmas trees - so what better way to depict this than by painting a cat with a Santa hat wrapped in lights on a rock. Start by drawing your cat on the rock and then you can paint in the details. Finish by adding a gold line around him with a gold marker.
Santa in the Chimney
To recreate this adorable idea, draw a line half way across the rock. At the top half you can draw Santa's legs. Now paint the bottom half in red and allow to dry. Paint in the Santa details. Now you can add white lines on the bottom half to create the bricks for the chimney.
