U Rock - Rocks! ~ Craftastic!

Pin It

Are you looking for a quick Teacher's Appreciate gift,  a cute and clever way to say "thanks" to a co-worker, or a little something quirky for a graduate (yes graduations are right around the corner)!  I have been making paperweight rocks for a while now.  They are quick and easy.

I made these for my team at work.  We have been working extremely hard for several reasons and I thought I would let them know how much I appreciate their efforts.  The company I work for starts with the letter U - so I thought I would play off that in my message - as well as tie in the "rock" theme.

Supplies list:

  • Rocks (In the middle of winter I found some at Michaels but any will do)
  • Glitter Glue - any brand, any color


1. Determine how you want your rock to sit.

2. Write your message with glitter glue.

3.  Let dry for at least 24 hours. You will be so surprised how long it takes to completely dry.



  1. These are so cute girl! I love it! What a great idea. I think we might do this on one of our camping trips. :)

  2. I think this is a creative and fun idea. I would enjoy this craft and it is colorful and I love the sparkles in the glitter glue! I would keep these on my desk at work!

  3. what a unique, thoughtfull gift! and super easy! I actually live on a river, so river rocks are easy to come by!

  4. Such a cute idea. I want to do this for my son's teacher.

  5. Great idea! The glitter glue definitely adds a fun touch. I think you're right about this being a good teacher's appreciation option. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I can do this with all my grandchildren all supplies are there in my local dollar store too, thanks

  7. this is awesome, i never thought to get some rocks to paint, thanks for sharing an amazing idea, i know what we are doing later for craft time

  8. I just love this as I have what is needed to make them on hand. I bought a bag of those rocks for a planter and never used them. This would be a great craft to do with my great-niece for her to make and give as gifts this Christmas!


Thanks for stopping by. We love hearing from you!
