Create Personalized Garden Art

Transform an ordinary rock into a piece of garden art that labels your plants and outdazzles the flashiest flowers. It's as simple as gathering the decorations with your kids, then painting the rocks and creating the design. Give these handmade stones as a gift to your favorite gardeners or keep them for your own patch of green. Get the step-by-step instructions for making rock art.
