Earth Day Rocks

Earth Day Rocks (no, literally)
I decided to make these rocks instead of place cards for our Earth Day dinner.  I thought I would share the idea since it is pretty cute and simple.  

I used vinyl lettering but you could print on vellum and mod podge it on or just write it on with a Sharpie.  I gathered rocks about the size of my fist that would stand up fairly high (not just lay flat).
As I was gathering the small ones I thought it would be fun to make a big one too!  This one is about 10 inches long and 8 inches high. 
After I gathered my rocks, I washed them and dried them.  While they were wet the colors were brighter so I decided to mod podge them to keep the "wet" look.  I mixed it with an equal part water so the mod podge wouldnt be too thick.

I set them on newspaper to dry.  After they were dry I stuck the vinyl lettering on.   

This is SOO easy!!  Good Luck Super Mommies!

    P.S. does it count as washing the rocks if it's been POURING outside :D
