If you love glitter, you’ll love this quick and easy craft which makes use of natural materials.

By: Andrea Mulder-Slater

Even if you don’t love glitter (who doesn’t love glitter!?), you’ll still enjoy this easy craft.

What You Need:

  • Glue (white school glue)
  • An old paintbrush
  • Glitter
  • Mod Podge (optional)
  • A pencil  (optional)
  • A paper plate and a covered work area.

What You Do:

Clean and dry your rock and place it on a paper plate or a piece of cardboard.

Paint a heart shape on a rock using glue and an old paintbrush. You might wish to first draw the heart  using pencil.

Paint a heart using glue.

Sprinkle on the glitter.

Shake off the excess onto the plate and let it dry.

The completed glitter rock.

Once dry, you can coat the rock with a glue and water mixture (80% glue/20% water) or by using Mod Podge. This is an optional step but it will prevent glitter from falling off of the rock.

Try using different colours!

Glitter rocks!

Glitter Clean Up Tips

  • Always cover your work space with a big garbage bag or sheet of newspaper so you can gather the mess and dispose of it.
  • A bowl of warm soapy water helps to remove glitter from little fingers.
  • Do your crafting in a box or on a plate to contain the mess.
  • Use a lint roller to clean up any stray bits of glitter from the table or off of clothing (or skin).
  • Vacuum or mop the floors after any glitter spills.
  • Do your glitter projects outside!
