Art Project #96-- Garden Mosaic Stepping Stones

We bought some mosaic stepping stone kits at Michael's craft store one day last week.  They were on sale for 40% off and I thought that might be another great craft for our 100 Days of Art.



We had made mosaic stepping stones years and years ago (so many years ago that they have fallen apart and we no longer have them).

Evan decided he really didn't want to make on so Ian, Alec and I settled down to work on them.  Everything we needed was included in the kit other than some cooking spray to keep the cement from sticking to the mold and some water to make the cement workable.

Once we mixed up the cement following the instructions we set to work decorating them.  I chose an abstract design using up as many mosaic pieces as I could while Ian chose to make a "welcome" stone.  Alec cut out and traced the snail shape onto his stone; filling in with stones.





Our completed stones:





We set them to dry overnight and then placed them throughout our gardens.  They look so pretty!

  1. This is such a cute idea! I think I want to give this project a try with my two little ones. I think they would really have a blast creating them and then finding the perfect spot for them in the garden. Thank you for sharing!
