Before you dress up your pet rock in stylish duds and learn how to care and feed for it, you actually need to make one! Our Community and Marketing Manager, Sara Olsher and her daughter recently added a new member to their family with just a few supplies. Check out their new pet rock addition below, and learn how to easily make your own today!

You’ll Need:
a rock
glue
fun fur yarn (we bought ours at Amazon) or feathers
a towel (to keep the rock warm and a base for your craft time so your table doesn’t get dirty)

Step 4: Lay out all of your supplies to make sure you have everything you need. Feel free to get creative with your decorations–we think feathers, ribbons and stickers could work well too!

Step 5: Lay out your towel on your table and begin to assemble your pet rock. Spread glue on the rock and affix the fun fur yarn all over.
