Rock. Paper. Mod Podge?

You were thinkin scissors weren't you...well folks that's not an option here!
...I mean, it could be if you have super dexterity ablilties but, I sure don't.
That is why I have a Cricut, it handles all the cutting for me!

On to the Rockin' project:]
{So cheesy, I know!}
 My house was in need of some street numbers that were more visible from the road. 
I came up with a simple solution using 'tools' I already had...
Mod Podge.

I used a large rock that was sitting sadly in the corner of the yard, holding down the weeds that are spreading from next door. {Grr}

I sprayed it down with the hose and then covered that sucker with generous amounts of mod podge. {it was easier than running to the store for some high gloss spray paint.} 
AND... it gave it the same effect...shiny and polished :]

While it was still wet I added the numbers {cut by my cricut} and topped the paper numbers with extra mod podge...those digits are NEVER coming off that rock!

Then I let the not so sad rock dry and gave it a new home in the front yard, in my newly planted flower garden.
{Notice it has rather nice company...I heart my gnome.}

You cant really tell just how polished my rock is but, trust me...its stellar!
Now, no one will ever doubt that I live at 1396...Never, ever:]
Happy Saturday & Happy Crafting!
