Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
A lighted solar stepping stone adds light as well as beauty to any home. They are easy to install and useful when having an outdoor party or going for a midnight swim. The lighted solar stepping stone provides enough light to see even on the darkest nights. These stones can also be used to illuminate a garden to make it noticeable even in the dark. This is a nice touch when throwing a patio party or a family gathering. The garden will look alive and beautiful with the lighted solar stepping stone.
The first option can be used to enhance an old fence added to the outside of your house or even as a free standing piece of artwork. Here is where it gets fun and creative you can make anything that you love. I personally love flowers and on my deck is a flower garden with some of them as tall as seven feet. I found the flower designs I wanted created a template out of paper traced around it onto MDF board (you can use 3/8 or ½ thick). You can also free hand a design remember the sky is the limit to what you create. Use a skill saw and cut out your design clean off the edges and remove any excess saw dust.
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.
