Worry Stones

These worry stones make lovely little gifts for loved ones who can rub them to reduce stress or tension.

Worry Stones

What you need

Poly clay or clay
Changeable Stamp


The stones can be printed with words such as


If you are using poly clay roll it out to form a small round shape and then using the stamp press the word into the clay and bake it as per the directions on your clay packet.

If you are using normal air drying clay follow the same directions as above except allow it to dry in the sun for a few days before painting it with some acrylic paint.

Once both versions are hard and dry, coat them with some clear varnish for a polished look.

You can also use these stones for Zen gardens or place a few of these into your glass vase for a interesting look to your flowers.

    Poly Clay can be bought at Michaels Craft Store so can bottles of Varnish. They
    have everything you need for this project. Everything comes with info / instructions.

    Great idea. I know just how to use them too. If you want to save some money, go to a thrift store & buy a round basket, brown maybe. You might have to spray paint it. Don’t get a big one though. Then put into your weaved basket, fill it up with flat loose light tan straw like filler type paper at Michaels. Then place your Worry Stones in basket. It will look charming on an end table or coffee table.
