Glue
A Twine piece (of 6" length)

Rub the ends of the dowel rod pieces with sandpaper. You can rub the ends into rounded surfaces.
Paint one dowel rod piece with red paint, another with white and the third one with blue paint. Draw some patriotic designs like stars and eagles on the rods. Allow them to dry.
Now cut the twine into 3 pieces, each approximately 2" in length.

A thin paint brush
Clear, spray-on varnish 

Method :
Color the entire stone with a thick layer of white paint.

When you finish painting, spray-paint the entire stone surface with two or three coats of clear varnish. This will prevent the removal of the paint from the stone surface.
