How to Make Heart Rocks



  1. Prepare rocks

    If your rocks come from outside, scrub them briefly, rinse them, and spread them out on a cookie sheet in a hot oven for a few minutes to dry. *

    *Note: If you gather rocks from a wet area, such as a stream, do NOT put them in the oven as the moisture may make them explode.

  2. Cut fabric

    Do you have any leftover fabric from other sewing or craft projects? This is a great way to use it.  Begin by cutting out small heart shapes from the fabric. You could also use paper if you don’t have any fabric.

  3. Decoupage

    Brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the rock. Then lay the fabric heart on it and brush another thin layer on the top of the fabric. Set aside to dry completely.
