Pebble Boot Mat

All you need for this is a selection of river rocks and a boot mat (You want the type that is like a tray, with raised edges). Simply fill the boot mat with rocks. No need to seal it, just add an instant uplift to an old boot mat stained by salt from winter boots!

Pebble Art

You can find dozens of inspiring art pieces on Pinterest, but you simply gather rocks and arrange them into a picture. Secure them with glue and perhaps use a shadow box frame to get them framed and then hang on your wall! You can find a suitable frame at a big box store, such as Michaels, or perhaps your local dollar store.

Makeup Brush Holder

The Home Daybook came up with this neat idea to store your makeup brushes. Simply find a nice glass container (I like the square holder, but you can pick your favorite), fill it with pebbles and add your brushes. The pebbles keep your brushes upright and easily accessible for you!

Stone Sconces

I love the style of these pebble-laden sconces, and they are relatively easy and cheap to make as well. Check out the full tutorial at The Noshery! They can make a lovely accent to a bathroom or even a sitting room.
