Pebble art is so easy to make and fun for people of all ages! They are completely customizable and each picture has a one-of-a-kind and unique look. I love that these can be given as a creative gift for any holiday or event or make one for yourself to hang in your own home. Try this DIY pebble art project today!
We have a large nature collection! We collect cool sticks, rocks, pinecones, flowers (that we press), moss, shells, and other unique pieces of nature. I love the idea of creating memories with these pieces of nature by turning them into a beautiful piece of nature art! Pebbles create the perfect pieces of art because they don’t have an expiration date and will last forever. If you are looking to make a beautiful piece of art that will last for years to come, try this DIY pebble art project!

Here’s How We Made These DIY Pebble Art Projects:
First, cut out pieces of cardboard. Our pieces measured out to 8×6 inches each. You can keep the cardboard like this and hand them out as a card or place them on a shelf. If you would like to hang them, then punch holes through the cardboard and thread a piece of twine to make a hanging loop.
I love that this craft doesn’t require a store bought frame. It’s a good reminder that we can often reuse items around our house to make art!
Move the pebbles around to make different designs and pictures to see which ones you like the most. You also want to make sure you have the specific stone shapes to suit your picture idea.
Last, glue your pieces of nature in place. I love using Tacky Glue for nature crafts! It has a strong hold, dries clear, and young children can use it. Let your glue dry for about an hour before you move your pictures.
You don’t need to make a complicated picture. We decided to glue our collection of heart shaped rocks to a piece of cardboard and this one turned out to be my favorite! This will make a perfect Valentine’s Day gift next year! What design ideas do you have?
