Garden Stepping Stones DIY Project

Stepping Stone Mosaic Molds

Working in the garden means navigating through flower beds to dead head and plant. Without having a place to safely set foot without trampling over all your plants, these chores become a nightmare and that's why having stepping stones is a must.

Every time I am at the garden center, I am bound to see stepping stones that I just fall in love with. Buying a special one, for an area that might be seen by many and splurging a bit is not so bad, however when you have a large garden the cost of these stepping stones can add up quiet a bit. That's when perhaps is best to find someone who can make the for you in bulk or time to roll up your sleeves and get busy making your own stepping stones. 


The materials to make your own stepping stones are very inexpensive, for molds you can use a cake pan and broken up pottery as seen in this tutorial by Intimate Weddings  or you can order re-usable molds as those sold through craft and art stores.

I personally love the idea of using natural elements such as leaves, pebbles or even sea shells. How wonderful are these oversized stepping stones?!
