Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
Decoration for these stones is limited only by your imagination. From a simple hand or paw print (name and date optional) up to a recreation of your favorite piece of art made out of shattered teacups your inner artist can run wild. Even photographs can be used simply put it between 2 sheets of glass and seal the edges with silicone. When using glass as decoration for your stones it is best to place the glass in the container first laying it out as you wish it to be in the finished product then carefully pour the concrete over it; this way there will be no sharp exposed areas.
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.
The first thing you will need to do is lay out the shape of your pathgarden hose works great for this. Tip: gently curved lines are usually more visually appealing than angular or straight lines. Once you have decided the shape and length of your path use the sod cutter to cut along the edges of your path to define the outer lines.
