Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
Personalized stepping stones make great gifts for nongardeners as well. Commemorate special occasions by having a stepping stone engraved. Celebrate a new birth with the newborns name and date. Help new couples remember their wedding and a proud bowler his first perfect game. Engraved stepping stones in landscape beds near a houses front door tell stories of the family inside each a reminder of important life events. The gift of an engraved garden stepping stone for a special occasion will be appreciated long after the event and will give the best gift of all. Each time the recipient steps over the stone it will conjure memories of joyous times past.
Our yards may seem like welcoming territory but they can certainly give off a friendlier messagewith a gorgeous and unique lookfinding stepping stones at home improvement stores in your area. Stones are a great natural material to use in your yard and can be highly versatile given the various different types of stone available.
The last step is again sealing the entire piece of artwork with an outdoor water repellent product. You can use a high gloss or matt finish your choice. Apply your artwork to the wall or fence with the appropriate screws or nails. If you dont want the screw heads to show put the piece up first and then paint it in place. Another option I love for outside use is painting concrete stepping stones. They come in all shapes and sizes in your local hardware store garden area. This is a great time of year to do this project because it will be ready for the spring.
