Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
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.
These stones can be used anywhere that could use a little color. Pick out the size and shape stone you like and one that fits your area the best. Remember you can put these little jewels in your garden areas as well. I suggest you use the concrete colored stones it is easier to cover with the paint. The first step is to use an exterior primer to seal the stone. Very important note seal only the top of the stone do not seal the entire stone. It needs a place for the moisture to come out. If you seal the bottom it will crack.
A stepping stone in your garden or backyard will give an elegant look to it can lead from one place to the other in the garden itself or lead from the front of the house to the rear and garden. These stones can be almost any durable strong material you choose you will need to think about the material carefully and make some decisions about what kind of care and maintenance you will need to put in how much effort in placing the stepping stones you are willing to spend and very basically how much are you thinking of putting into this home improvement task.
