Supplies Needed to Make a Grinch Painted Rock

Here are the materials you’ll need to make these Grinch painted rocks:

  • Rocks – Medium-sized rocks that are about 3 inches tall from the top of the hat to the bell. You can find rocks outdoors, at craft stores or on here.
  • Hot glue – hot glue will work best for gluing on all of the features to the rock. Have an adult help with this part.

How to Make Grinch Painted Rocks

1. Prime the rocks.

Start by priming the rocks first by adding a layer of white acrylic paint. You can use an acrylic paint pen or regular acrylic paint.

Priming the rocks will help the colors pop when you paint them on top. It also cuts back on the number of colored coats needed.

2. Paint the hat.

Paint the red hat on the top using a red paint marker.

Add Red to the Top

3. Paint the rest of the rock green.

Next, paint the rest of the rock green with a green paint marker.  You’ll probably need two coats to get good solid coverage. Allow it to dry between each coat.

7. Draw on the face.

Use the black paint marker to draw the Grinch’s facial features – eyebrows, nose and mouth.

8. Add the bow and bell.

Make a little bow from the red ribbon and glue it to the bottom of the rock.

Then glue a bell on top of the middle part of the ribbon.

Add Red Ribbon and Bell

Your Grinch rocks are now finished. They are so cute and will make fun gifts or decoration for the holiday season!
