Teachers Rock Paperweights

Made these with my kids for teacher gifts.   These are river rocks (from a landscape supply or Lowe's, etc.) painted with craft paint, acrylic latex, and glitter glue.  Paint pens were used to do the writing.
I put on a coat of Mod Podge after the paint and glitter glue dried to seal them and make them shiny.  Then I hot-glued jewels and sequins. 


About 3 coats of paint to cover the rock
