Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
So go ahead and buy yourself some Polyurethane Rubber concrete molds. You will see how much you can experiment with the various stone molds designs and will find making your own concrete stones and paving adds greatly to your sense of accomplishment in the way you make you beautify your pathways and garden. Making your own stepping stones is actually quite easy a bit messy and a lot of fun. Its a wonderful outside family craft for a warm seasonal day. Crafting a personalized handprint and/or footprint stepping stone for each child parent and even the pets will not only add charm to your garden path but also become prized keepsakes.
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.
Another form of garden statues youll find are the very popular cherub(s) statues and little boy/girl statues. These garden statues are popular because they are so cute and welcoming. You can add them anywhere in your garden and they are sure to look inviting. Some other fun forms of garden statues can be Disney characters solar light statues and figurines frogs and other kinds of wild life statues. Some garden statues come in the form of welcome signs or yard markers (for example by the mailbox the corners of the driveway etc.).
