Easy Stepping Stones for the Garden
Easy stepping stones for the garden. Creating garden stepping stones couldn’t be this easy, could it?
It is so easy that a group of 12-year-old children could make them and give them as gifts.
The stepping stone created above was made by a 12 year old! If you decide to collect all of your own supplies the stepping stones will only cost you around $2.75 to make.
You can get as creative as you would like with the creation of your garden stepping stones.
1) Cover your workspace with newspaper.
2.) Rub a thin layer of petroleum jelly on the inside of your mold or old pie tins
3.) Put on plastic gloves.
5.) Pour the Quikcrete into the molds. Tap the molds gently onto the ground to release the air bubbles trapped in the mold.
6.) Use a metal spatula to smooth the top of the Quikcrete. Press any decorative stones, shells or glass so that they are flush in the Quikcrete. If you want you can press cookie cutters into the Quikcrete to create patterns or hands for handprints. Press letters into the exposed Quikcrete if you wish. You will want to work quickly because the Quikcrete dries fast.
7.) Allow the stepping stone to dry at least 24 hours before removing from the mold.
