How To Make Cactus Painted Rocks -:
As we have mentioned this is a very simple project. The important thing will be to locate the correct shaped rocks. You want a nice smooth surface. You should wash and dry them thoroughly so you have a nice clean surface to paint on.
It’s suggested that you use Green Acrylic Paint. Once you have painted your rocks green, leave them to dry completely. You can then decorate using white paint or a permanent white marker. You can use dots, lines, stars to create effects like shown above.
Anything goes. It would be a good idea at this point to scroll our page in its entirety and check out all the Cactus variations. This will provide you with plenty of inspiration.

Another way to get some color into your project and give it a real Mexican flavor is to paint up your Clay Pots. This really brightens them up and they look great grouped together. The more colorful the better and remember, you can pop these outside in your entertaining areas too. A sealant will preserve the color in your rocks.
We also think they look great in a plain Clay Pot. The terracotta colour combined with the green painted stones is very striking. As these photos show, anything goes!
