Crafting with Rocks
Rocks provide an inexpensive material for crafting. Rock crafts can be made with rocks and stones that often can be found for free. And you can't beat free!
Smooth river rocks or a nice pebble or two can be picked up here or there while you're out on a walk. Of course, if you want to go crazy with rock craft projects, you can seek out more special rocks that are just right for your rock crafts.
Some common rock craft projects include painted rock crafts that are made into paperweights and magnets. This photo shows drawer pulls made from Lake Superior river rocks.
