These fingerprint art rocks for Halloween are so fun and easy to make! I promise you won’t be able to stop at just one. Soon you will have a large collection just like us!
We had so much fun making these! I think they make a cute home decoration, classroom art project, or non-sugary Halloween gift to pass out during trick-or-treating. We might even hide them in our neighborhood for people to find! I think they would be fun to discover during a walk. What do you think?!
Ready to make a bunch? Here’s what you’ll need….
- Washable Paint
- Thin Black Sharpie Marker
- Stones- We grabbed a few from our nature collection. You can also find stones in craft stores, landscape shops, or Amazon.
- We were inspired by illustration in this fingerprint art book! The last I checked, it was 77% off!

Here’s Our Favorite Fingerprint Art Designs:
Before you add the detail to make your Halloween picture, you need to paint your fingertip and stamp it on the rock! Some designs work best with just the top circular part of a fingertip and some work best with half of a fingertip painted.
- Draw two triangles for ears
- One large circle with a dot in the middle for an eye
- One curve for the smile
- Two colored in triangles for the teeth
Silly Monster #2
- Three longer strands of hair on each side of the monster’s face and four short strands of hair for the bangs
- Three dots for eyes
- Four upside down triangles touching each other for teeth
Notice there are two fingerprint marks here!
- Two colored in ovals for eyes
- One colored in triangle for the nose
