Holiday Gifts of Painted Rocks

The holidays are quickly approaching and here's a simple idea for unique, one-of-a-kind ornaments and gifts.

By adding a pretty ribbon to those small painted stones and rocks you've been painting, you've now converted your painted stone into a holiday ornament for tree-trimming or a small present for gift giving.

I've used holiday-themed painted rocks for my ornaments, however, any small painted stones would be a great gift ornament for someone.
Just glue the ribbon to the back of the stone. To make it look more finished, you can cover the spot where the ribbon is attached with fabric or wrapping paper and Mod Podge it.

Remember to keep the weight of the stone in mind when choosing to convert them into ornaments. You don't want the tree to topple over.
