How to do it

  1. Clean rocks with soap and water and let dry completely.
  2. Basecoat each rock in a different colour, let dry. Apply second coat and let dry.
  3. While rocks are drying, cut desired design elements from scrapbook paper. For these projects, we used a flower design, several small banners, and a heart.
  4. Wrap lace around rocks and cut to desired length.
  5. Paint bottom section of floral rock with the 4th colour. This is the area that will be under the lace. Let dry.
  6. Following basic instructions on Mod Podge, apply papers to rocks and let dry.
  7. Brush a thin coat of Mod Podge onto rocks and apply lace, press lace down to attach to rocks, and apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over lace.
  8. Let dry completely.
