Identify Your Garden with an Address Painted on Rocks

A way to make your garden and yard distinctive is to display rocks with your address painted on them. Painted rocks can also be used as unique memorial markers.

Instead of whimsy, you may wish to add a magical element to your garden with yard art that invokes fairies and gnomes.

Because of the varying shapes of rocks and extensive paint colors available, hand-painted gnome homes are truly unique and one-of-a-kind garden art decor that attract attention, comments and curiosity about who may be living in the garden.

Add Whimsy to Your Garden with Painted Rock Critters

As quoted in The Denver Post, "Adding art to your garden is an extension of your identity," ... "You decorate the inside, why not the outside? Any personality, any hobby, can be represented - classical, funky, seasonal - you name it."

Rocks can be painted to achieve all of these garden art styles and more - whimsy, magic, personality, love of animals, seasonal, classical, funky, etc.

For instance, you can express your whimsical nature with a cute, painted rock critter that hides among the foliage and flowers.

Can you imagine a painted rock alligator's head peeking from underneath your garden foliage? Do you think it would attract attention to your garden and cause a closer look?

Take a peek at how an alligator's head painted on a rock added subtle whimsy to these gardens.

With a little acrylic paint and imagination, rocks can be transformed into garden art that's either fun & whimsical or beautiful & decorative. Painted rocks are always unique and one-of-a-kind because of shape, texture, and paint technique.

Why not forego cookie cutter, machine-made garden decor and try some painted rocks in your garden this year?
