Halloween Monster Painted Rocks

Written by: | Published: September 09, 2016 | Updated: May 03, 2023

Head outside, grab some rocks and get out the craft paint. We’re making Halloween Monster painted rocks today! This is a fun Halloween craft you can make with the kids, as a group activity or make yourself. Painted rocks are quick to create but you can take your time and make them as detailed or simple as you’d like. This is also a fun girls night activity… Halloween word art would be fun too!

Halloween Monster Painted Rocks

You can create so many different Halloween monsters and fun Halloween word art on your painted rocks. paint the rocks however you like. Create silly monster faces or fun Halloween words. A tip for drawing: Write or draw slowly so you get nice clean lines on the bumpy rock surfaces.


Halloween monster painted rocks - supplies


  1. Paint the rocks with a layer of whatever craft paint color you’d like. Make sure to cover the rock thoroughly. If you paint too thick, it will take longer to dry. Allow to dry completely – about 5 minutes.
  2. Use the white paint pen to draw any white designs – allow to dry about a minute
  3. Use the Black marker to draw in details. – You want to draw with the white first and then cover with the black because the white paint pen tends to pick up the black and become more gray.
  4. Add googly eyes with the glue if you’d like.

Note: you can paint all the designs on your monster rocks if you like. I prefer to draw them, so the paint pens work a little easier for me than a brush. Kids might enjoy painting all kinds of fun, bold colors too.

Make this project with your Cricut Machine! I’ve created an SVG cut file for you to use if you’d like to make these cute monster rocks yourself. You can also use these silly monster faces for other projects. Just download the file, upload to Cricut Design Space and start creating!

Tip: If you plan on leaving the rocks outside in the weather, especially over the winter in cold and snow, I recommend applying a sealer to protect the paint.
