Create your own moon rocks with this DIY project

Do you love creating? Do you want to spruce up your interior while doing so? Transferring photos onto rocks is a great way to combine both. Not only is this DIY project simple and quick, but it's a great way to involve the family if you're looking to fill a Saturday afternoon.
Options are endless when it comes to the design aspect. You can create your own moon rocks for a child's room by selecting space images, or opt for something that fits a more general aesthetic by selecting cool tones for a beach themed bathroom, or something floral for an outdoor garden. There's a good chance you even have a lot of these supplies on hand. Otherwise a quick trip to the local hobby store will do the trick and get you off and creating in no time.

Instructions
1. Select the image you would like transferred onto your rock. Keep in mind that a photocopy of an image will work best for this project.
2. Dip your paint brush into the Mod Podge and paint over your photo with a thick layer.
3. With your hair dryer, blow dry the photo until it's dry. This should take about five minutes or so.
4. Dip your paint brush back into the Mod Podge and paint over your photo again with one more layer.
5. Repeat step three and dry your photo.
6. After the paint has dried, take your scissors and cut out the area of the photo you wish to transfer to the rock.
7. Put this cut out piece face down in your bowl.
8. Cover the image with about one cup of water.
9. Make sure the entire image gets soaked through with the water, and begin to gently scrub or peel away layers of paper until all you're left with is the thin layer of Mod Podge.
10. Lay this layer of Mod Podge onto dry paper towels and allow to dry completely.
11. After the paint has dried, fit the Mod Podge image to your rock, and cut the image to fit again if needed.
12. After you have chosen the image you would like to stick, take your paint brush and paint the rock with a thick layer of Mod Podge, and adhere the image to that area.
