A Round-up Of Rock Crafts For Your Favorite Collection

If you are a nature lover like me, you may find yourself collecting pretty stones or other objects from outside.  I have a whole bag of heart shaped rocks, that I collected from a beach in Florida, that I plan on using in a craft project or for cabinet knobs.

Since rocks can be so much fun to collect and they each look so unique, they make great items to use decoratively.  The question is how exactly to use them?

That question is easily answered with this collection of fun rock crafts that put your favorite rocks on display in a fashionable way.

The first idea is something that I did with some small rocks.  I combined them with birch branches to make a rustic sticks and stones tissue box cover and now use it up at our cabin in one of the bathrooms.  It was a simple way to bring a little nature inside.

drawer-pull

Rock drawer pull craft by Squidoo.

One of my favorite uses for rocks is to make them into drawer pulls.  You can easily make them by gluing them to a drawer pull base with a strong adhesive like E6000 craft glue.
decorated-birdhouse

Birdhouse decorated with river rock by Ben Franklin Crafts.

You can use rocks to embellish lots of different items.  I love the effect it gave this birdhouse.  An inexpensive unfinished birdhouse turns into a work of art with the right touches!  Colorful rocks would also add a lot of interest to a plain picture frame or mirror.
photo-holder

Rock made into a photo holder by Country Living.

This is a fun idea for a larger rock.  A photo holder base would be a great idea – especially if you used it to hold a photo of a vacation spot that you maybe found the rock.
