Directions for Creating Your Own Fall Painted Rocks

1. Outline the Design on the Rock

With a pencil, trace the outline of the bottom half of the truck. Include the bed of the truck, the bumper, and the tires.

2. Draw the Window and Mirrors

Leave room for the “fall decoration” in the middle of the rock, above the bed of the truck. Then trace the top of the truck and the rearview mirrors.

Truck design is sketched onto the rock with space left for the contents of the truck bed. The window is disconnected from the base with a bit of a space.

3. Paint the Truck

Choose a bright color to use when coloring in your truck. Color the bed of the truck as well as the top of the truck. You can use gray and black for the bumper and tires.

4. Add Fall Designs

You can use your pencil again to trace any fun fall decor/items that you want in the back of the truck like flowers, pumpkins, or a barrel of apples. Don’t forget the rear view mirror in the middle of the windshield.
