Over the years the hubster and I have collected stones like this.
Because his sister gave us this bowl.
For years we just plopped stones in the bowl, which moved to various spots around the house depending on the mobility of our boys, that was until I saw this whilst potaling around Etsy.

I had one of those ‘Ahh ha’ moments, finally a use for these pesky stones!
After cleaning them up, shocking how dusty stones get, I painted a letter on to each stone.
I somewhat matched letters to the stone, shape wise, but ran out towards the end. After I had painted each letter I painted ‘dots’ around the edges, these are really just small splodges with the tip of a paint brush
If you do this just remember whether you are doing capital or lower case letters, after I had finished the letters I realised I had mixed them up, duh, which is fine if you want a mash up of letters!
I love the idea of painting stones; I have a stash of stones which I shall be painting up with the boys names,
What would you paint on to stones?
