There’s snow on the ground outside my window, but my mind has already turned to spring decorating. I’m itching to bring a little bit of the outdoors in and vice versa. I’m ready to see the house filled with spring blooms and the front porch decorated for the season. I can’t wait to begin decorating our new patio and pergola and start digging in the dirt in the garden.

These adorable painted rocks just scream spring. with pastel colors and a whimsical vintage camper design. I can’t wait to use them to decorate my spring planters and the garden.

Instructions for Painted Rocks

Begin by cleaning the river rock with water. Allow to dry completely. Make sure you choose a large rock with a smooth, flat surface for easier painting.

Use chalk to sketch out the vintage camper design on the surface. You don’t have to be a good artist for this project. I promise; I’m not.

I pretty much just followed the shape of the rock to come up with the shape of my camper. I also looked at a few photos and drawings of vintage campers to figure out the placement of the doors, windows, the tire and the hitch.

I used a small, flat paintbrush to fill in the camper. I choose to use Snow White paint on the top half, and Turquoise Blue on the bottom half. I used Grey Sky for the windows and Poodleskirt Pink for the door since most vintage “glampers” are bright, colorful and cheerful.

I used two to three coats of each color to get full coverage on the rock. Be sure to allow each coat of paint to dry completely.

I used a fine-tip paintbrush to outline the camper in Lamp Black paint and to add details like the bunting and the cheery yellow curtains in the window.

To finish the rock, spray it with several coats of DecoArt Americana Gloss Spray Sealer, especially if you’re planning to use it outside. (You could also use DecoArt Patio Paint for this project.)

Whenever I look at these painted rocks, I can’t help but think of my Grandma Mills. She used to have a small camper parked outside her house, and she loved to paint, too.

I really wish I had her camper to fix up and doll up for a spring break road trip. How much fun would that be?
