DIY Paperweights are Easy-to-Make Holiday Gifts
These colorful paperweights make the perfect handmade Holiday gift that a child can make easily.
Gather some rocks, fabric scraps, foam brush and decoupage. Begin by cutting small pieces of fabric. Paint a bit of decoupage the size of the fabric piece on the rock.
Place the piece of fabric on the rock.
Continue until the entire rock is covered. Make sure all the edges of the fabric pieces a completely attached to the rock. Allow to dry at least 15 minutes.
If you would like to add a monogram like we did, cut a letter out of fabric and attached with decoupage to the dried layer of fabric covering the rock. Let dry 15 minutes. Once dry give the entire rock a generous coat of decoupage.
A child will surely smile when they see their handmade paperweight on a desk and the recipient will be thankful for a useful gift!
