Project Day: Beach Stone Artwork


Here is a really simple and easy project. I made this with my daughter and niece so it's a good project for kid's to get involved with. You will need: A small blank canvas (I bought this one from a "cheapie" store for $5.00) , a collection of rocks from your favourite beach ( I have used 16) and some Tarzan Grip glue (or similar craft glue). You need to make sure your rocks are flat and you will need different sizes to form each "pod". Firstly you glue the rocks on top of each other. It's best to use 2 or 3 to form one "pod". Then glue the finished "pods" onto the canvas however you please. I have finished it off with the date and location in pencil (Yamba NSW is home to Pippi Beach, one of my all time favourite beaches). Have a great weekend everyone and I will talk to you all next week. Simone xxx

  2. I really love this idea and I love the sound of Pippi Beach too. One of the things I miss most about living in Australia are of course the beaches but more the way that every beach has its own atmosphere and beauty.

  6. Oh, that's a great idea! I've been looking for some projects to do with my grandson and granddaughter this summer, and this seems like a good one for them as it's not too involved. And we have tons of rocks (my grandson is a rock collector!), I don't know how many of them are flat though. I'll have to ad-lib on your creativity a little.
    Thanks for a great idea!

  12. These are so cool! My little boy would love to make these as they look a bit like alien eyeballs. We need to hit a beach! Unfortunately we are no where near one.

    living near the beach + having a love affair with beach rocks = an absurd amount of rocks
