DIY-Painted Pebbles as pattern weights

Sometimes its a joy to make stuffs like kids and enjoy like them. I painted some pebbles which I can call is perfect for kids craft ;). But I use it as pattern weights. My pattern cut outs on fabric look so colorful now.  

Here there are my KopyKat Nature Pebbles and how I made them.

Do you remember my miniature painted pots.I had blogged about it once long back.I used enamel paints then but this time I used acrylics.This isn't a big tutorial but just simple two steps on how to paint pebbles.

Materials required:
Acrylic paints
Few Pebbles

Step1 :
Wash and dry the pebbles. Choose a pattern from nature and paint it on to the pebble.
I chose some patterns from nature.
Step 2 :
Once dried. coat them with varnish.


So many colorful pattern weights I have now Yippee!! As usual there has to be something related to peacock my favourite bird.
How is the strawberry pebble so real na ;) What are you upto ?
Happy weekend.

P.S : I have linked up my project to all/some of the links here.


  1. Clever and inexpensive, Diya. My favourites are the ladybird and strawberry. I have a driveway full of pebbles that I could use...

  2. Those are fun! I especially like the peacock one!

  5. So clever. I am forever grabbing objects from around my house to hold patterns down. These little pebbles can just live with my sewing supplies instead!

  6. Lovely little pebbles and so creative Diya. Loved the peacock feather, the lady bug and not to leave out nemo.

  7. That looks original, although I do remember doing this as a child, too :) Seems like a long time ago.
