If you're feeling particularly crafty today, we've got a simple and quick DIY for you that has a huge payoff. Rocks, crystals, and geodes are perfect for bringing a natural and soothing energy into any room. They make for the perfect bedside companions, bookshelf fillers, good luck charms, pet rocks, and even keychains - but have you ever thought about hanging one of them from your wall? Well, neither did we... until a few days ago.
What you'll need:
- silicone (or super strong glue)
- your favorite rock friends
- a shadowbox frame (make sure your rock fits inside)
- white mat board
Step 1: Find your center
Measure the mat board on both sides to determine where you'll glue your rock. It doesn't have to be exact - but it gives you a good ballpark range of where to glue.
Step 2: Get sticky
Glue your rock to the mat board in the way that makes it the flattest it can possibly lay. You want to make sure it fits perfectly inside your frame!
Step 3: Let 'em sit
While your rock friends are drying, it's a good idea to clean your glass and get your frame ready. Make sure all those pesky little specks and fingerprints are nowhere to be seen! Once everything is good and dry, put your frame back together and marvel at your awesome DIY skills.
You can experiment with all kinds of rock shapes and frame sizes. If you're feeling extra crazy, try using a patterned piece of paper or a bright color mat board. We wanted to keep things simple and elegant, but there's no limit to what you can do with these!
Come mine through our shelves of rocks and geodes until you find the perfect little stone for your project. Oh, and if you need a frame, we're pretty sure we've got you covered on that, too.
