Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
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.
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.).
After you have sealed the stone and it has dried apply any color or design you like. It is best to use outdoor paint but I have used indoor with no problems. The last and final step is to use a clear coat sealer it often comes in a spray can or you can paint it on. Viola you are done and you now have a beautiful stepping stone for less than $10.00.
