If you didn’t already know, we love the alphabet at our house and have an entire wall dedicated to it. Since my 2 year old son loves letters, I wanted to make him some alphabet rocks to practice his ABC’s. In the process I realized there is a lot you can do with rocks and a little imagination. While most people tend to paint their rocks with acrylic paint (like the number rocks I made), I decided to try something a little bit different by using stamps and heat embossing.
On the front of each rock I did uppercase letters and on the back I did lowercase letters.
- –Rocks (I gathered mine from the beach, but you can find them at the dollar store or craft store)
- –Stamps – I bought my UPPERCASE stamps at Paper Source and the lowercase ones at Michaels. Here are similar stamps that come with both upper and lowercase letter.
- –Clear stamp pad
- –Embossing powder – Bright colors stand out the best like this embossing powder I bought from Paper Source.
- –Embossing Heat Tool
- –Modge Podge Matte – (Optional)
