Welcome to our tutorial on how to paint rocks to look like strawberries!

This craft is perfect for both kids and adults and is a great way to add some fun, unique decorations to your home or garden.

Not only are these painted rocks a cute and creative way to decorate, but they also serve a practical purpose: placing them among your strawberry plants can help deter birds from eating all of your fresh berries. This tutorial is simple and easy to follow, so even if you’re new to rock painting, you’ll be able to create beautiful strawberry-inspired rocks in no time. So grab your paint and let’s get started!

Paint the rocks red with 3 coats of red paint using the 1 inch paint brush, allowing the paint to dry between each coat. You may use a hair dryer to speed up the dry time.

use the angled artist brush to paint the top wider part of the rock green, then paint the “leaves” of the berry.

Use the foam dabber to paint the yellow “seeds” of the berry, by just dabing the brush on the rock.

Make a tiny dab of black paint above the yellow seed.

Spray the rocks with glaze, and allow a couple of hours to completely dry.
