Natural Stones: A beautiful gift

Remember as a child how we loved to collect sea or river colored stones and take them home? Stones that we so loved to collect as a child can now become a beautiful gift for your loved ones. Natural Stones can be used to make a variety of gifts. They are beautiful elements and easily accessible with little to no maintenance.

You can even use the natural stones lying around your home to make incredible gifts if you are on a budget. Take all those pebbles and stones and turn them into something that people will love.

Stone candle holders - Take some relatively smooth stones or try sanding down some of the rough ones and paint them. Then use a hot glue gun to stick them together. Keep making sure that your candles will fit into the holder along the way.

Stone photo transfers - Transfer photos onto stone and create a museum like display. You can do it with any photo you want by using a clean stone, a printed photo, damp fabric, a transfer medium, a brush and varnish.

Makeup brush storage - For the makeup lover in your life, there’s nothing better than a great way to store your makeup brushes. Take any glass vase and add small river rocks and stones to it to create a great gift. The stones not only look great but they keep your brushes standing tall and they won’t bump into each other.

Rock frames - Choose stones that are smooth enough to hot glue to a picture frame and then start covering up the frames. You can even paint them if you want or leave them natural for a more country look.

Moon rocks - Children love moon rocks. If you want to gift a child something special, why not try  a moon rock. With a little glitter and some other supplies you can turn regular stones into amazing moon rocks. These are easy to make and can show off your space skills.

A Stone birdhouse - Need help thinking of a gift for your neighbor? A little stone birdhouse can be a great option. Stone birdhouses can be a great addition to gardens, patios, decks and all types trees. If they are a history buff, some stone birdhouses go all the way back to medieval times. Plus they’re much easier to make than you might think.
