This craft started with a few rocks. I love the idea of bringing home a simple, free souvenir from vacation, and I discovered that rocks are small and easy enough to sneak into a suitcase. I also love that a rock represents the place you visited. You’re not going to find the same rock in Nantucket as you would in Cosrica, you know what I mean? I don’t remember to do it on every vay-cay, but I try. So, the rocks have been piled in the phone booth in our hallway. Not cute and honestly, a slight hazard, ha! We keep knocking them off of the shelf with our wild limbs. So, I’m crafting a solution. Oh and for most normal people that don’t collect rocks, this could easily be used as a cake stand!
I found this plate at Good Will for $1.50 and the wooden candle holder was 50 cents. You’ll also need some Krazy Glue.
First, paint your wooden candle holder, I choose white. Then, glue that sucker to the bottom of your plate. Talk about easy. Seriously a 3 minute craft, if you don’t count the whole paint drying thing. And now our vacation rocks get to live on a cute stand for all to explore.
That’s my kinda craft! Do you collect rocks on vacation? Or do you need a cake stand? Either way, this was easy!
Psst… here’s another 5 minute paper craft that I use all of the time!
