Today we're coming at you with a fun DIY project by mambi Design Team member Laura Rahel Crosby (blog | IG) that would work to decorate a garden, desk, or window sill, or be the perfect craft for kids. These statement rocks using some of our clear mambiSTICKS stickers would work as a gift for your child's new teacher at the start of the school year paired with a handmade card.
About this project, Laura writes:
"These beauties are colorful and oh so delightful to look at. I have a small vegetable garden this year and to help attract more bees to my tomato plants (to increase their health and fruitfulness) I wanted to add some color around all the green plants in my garden. Mission totally accomplished with these gorgeous colorful rocks that now line my garden.
For this DIY you need some rocks, (rocks with a flat/smooth face work best) acrylic paint in your favorite colors, and mambiSTICKS clear sticker packs. I love finding a new way to use my beautiful supplies and these stickers look even more fun on rocks than they did in my scrapbook. YAY for trying new things!"
"Paint your rocks with a few layers of acrylic paint, letting each layer of paint dry before reapplying. If you're going to use your rocks outside, you can seal them with a clear coat but acrylic paint is waterproof so it's not necessary unless you want that extra layer of protection. Next, pick your favorite phrase stickers from the mambiSTICKS sticker pack and add them to your rocks. Then you're done! I told ya it was easy!
This project is probably one of my all time favorite DIYs I've ever created. The rocks are so bright, fun, and colorful. I put most of them out in my garden and I kept my favorite one inside to use as a decoration/ paperweight on my desk."
