Colorful Artistic Rock Paperweights or Rock Decorations

If you enjoy painting deli papers, then you probably have a collection of them already. This is an idea how you can use them for something practical. All you need are large rocks, paint, the papers and decoupage glue. Then use them as paper weights or create several with the same paper or using different papers and arrange the rocks in a tray or bowl as a centerpiece.



Artistic Paper Weights


For this project you will need:

Large Rocks
- large rocks (preferably with a flat side)
- white acrylic paint and paint brush
- painted deli papers
- decoupage glue


Paint the Rocks
1. First paint the rocks with white paint. This will brighten them up a bit so the papers will look a little more light when applied to the rocks.
Tear Paper into Pieces
2. Then tear the pre-painted deli papers into small pieces.
3. Afterwards just adhere the papers to the rock on one side and let it dry. When dry, turn the rock over and finish the other side. Let it dry completely before using.

Hand Painted Art Papers
A used plastic store card or gift card was first used to apply different colors of paint to several deli papers. Once these were dry, the papers were stencilled with several different techniques (let the pages dry in between coats) and the pages were also sprinkled with paint. Each new layer made the page more interesting.
Here is a video so you can see how the most talented “Cat Hand” created her deli papers to give you inspiration to making your own. Then all you have to do afterwards is apply the papers to this project.
