DIY Garden Stepping Stones
Stepping stones can really highlight the beauty of a garden. And there are plenty of advantages that come with this kind of do-it-yourself project. Your kids will love stepping stones; they`ll imagine that the stepping stones will lead them to an enchanted garden. The guests will admire the way your garden looks so the project is worth your time for the great aesthetics and for the money you’ll be saving, because it is quite cheap. You can work and create great stepping stones in your garage or on a table. You can create nice paths that lead to the garden using these decorative stones. You can use your imagination and use any stone sizes and patterns to come up with something original. The ingredients you’ll be using are the following: water, mold, Portland cement, release agent and decorative elements. The mold should be smooth and it should peel off or release easily once the stone is ready. Plastic containers are your best bet because the stone will release itself quite easily from the plastic. To save yourself some time and effort, use a rubber doormat for some awesome patterns that will be printed in the stone. You can turn the stepping stones into leaves of various shapes and sizes. If you are still stuck or if you don’t have a particular pattern in mind, you can use a slithery path made out of pebbles that have different colors. You can use colored little stones to create butterflies and create a path out of these beauties. You can add some glass beads and some little stepping stones to render the idea of a conch. You can even use a stamp or a concrete stain and stamp different patterns on the stones. You can buy some interesting props to make the stepping stones’ patterns glow in the dark. There are so many ideas, that it’s hard to choose just one and stick with it.
