Garden Stepping Stone
Click below for step-by-step instruction on creating a garden stepping stone.
Collect your supplies (supplies listed below). Create a work space and put on your rubber gloves.
Mix ready-to-use concrete filler until it is a smooth consistency.
Using a scraper or a spatula, smooth out the surface of your concrete. Gently tap the cheesecake on the ground to get it to settle a little more cleanly.
Begin adding your design. Using gems, sea glass, small stones, mosaic shards or even using handprints or pawprints, create a design that speaks to you. Don't push the stones in too deep, or they may become covered in concrete and get lost.
When you have finished your design, allow your concrete to cure. Reference the quick concrete package for cure time. Keep in a dry, warm place. When it is set, it is ready to pop out of the cheesecake tin and into your garden!
