For the Love of Nature: Decorative Stones

Sharpie Decorated Stones

Nature always inspires me so I'm happy when I can create something using nature itself! And when it comes to stones.... I have plenty in my back yard......too many, in fact.  So if you want some, come on over!

Sharpie Decorated Stones

These hand drawn designs were made with a sharpie and were inspired by these owl pebbles.

I love them all, but I think the butterflies are my favorites.  I have plans for many more decorative stones.... birds, bugs, and even sea creatures!  I can't wait to get crackin'!

  1. Your stones are so beautiful. I've crocheted covers for lots of stone and like the way they look gathered in a basket. :) Wishing you a wonderful day. Tammy

  5. You're so talented! These are simple, but so pretty. I'd say, think of a way to use a group of them together, maybe some decorated, some plain. Then sell them!

  6. Those are beautiful! I would definitely make some too if I had your drawing skills! I think you should put them back in your yard so I can come by and take ones that have pretty drawings on them :) I would love if you shared this at my Throwback Thursday party. I hope to see you there and thank you for sharing :) http://www.hubbymademe.com/throwback-thursday-no-10/

  9. Your stones are so pretty! I don't think my drawing talent is good enough for them to look anything like yours, but these are really cool!

  10. Fabulous idea!
    Did you paint the stones first, or is that their natural colour? They look so pretty grouped in that bowl :)
