I remember a craft as a kid where you made pictures out of small rock gravel perhaps and you used cord to outline the gravel.  They made some pretty funky pictures.  I believe this was a 60s craft.  thanks

I can't remember what they were called, but they were sold by the paint by number kits.  The ones I remember were more like aquarium gravel with yarn. Now, I'm really dating myself, but it was the late 60's and early 70's when I did these.

Yea, and you used black cord or gold cord to outline with glue.

You really brought back memories.  I never saw it as a DIY kit. In the 70's I had a pair of very wide pictures on my wall above my couch. that was similar. If I recall correctly it was walnut finished wood with gondolas made of some raised pieces of plastic instead of gravel. And the gondoliers were painted white.  This type of wall hangings were very popular at the time.
