Rainbow Striped Painted Rock Photo Holder Craft

Take painted rocks to the next level by turning them into photo displays.

Hi Rock Painting Friends, it's Natalie from Doodlecraft with another fun rock painting craft project!  

Make this adorable rainbow striped painted rock and wire wrapping to hold photographs or name cards. It's a perfect project for Easter or just because!

Rainbow stripes painted in non-traditional colors with some simple gold wire make this a very economical craft.  


It's reminiscent of a rainbow with a pot of gold at the end!  

These would look cute set around a table for place card settings for Easter brunch too! The pastel rainbow stripes look a little bit like Easter eggs.
Wire wrapped rock holds a photograph or name card to display on the table.

If you are willing to let us feature your rock on this website, you can submit your unique painted rock creations here.
