Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
Every gardener loves accessorizing her garden. Whimsical or formal sentimental or practical garden ornaments complete a garden by further extending the gardeners personality beyond plant selection. Trellises gazing balls wind chimes and bird baths are traditional offerings. As families landscape more of their yards creating nooks and crannies for enjoying the outdoors garden stepping stones have become very popular. The variety of stepping stones is endless. When considering a gift for a gardener think about creating a stepping stone just for them.
These stones arent just great as walkways to your porch but also as a great decorative or functional walkway through flower beds or gardens. You dont have to worry about the kids walking through your tulips if they have a useful path that you constructed using gorgeous stepping stones you bought for a very inexpensive price. They require absolutely no upkeep and will add a little variety to your garden with very little effort.
The kids will enjoy comparing their hands and feet to their parents as they grow and the parents will cherish the memories the little prints will hold of childhood for many years to come. The easiest way to craft stepping stones is to make them using a method called the Stone Topper. If you have never made a mosaic stepping stone or are looking for a quick and inexpensive way of crafting a number of stones this method is perfect. No molds no expensive kits little mess and you probably have most of the needed materials on hand.
