Interested in sprucing up your garden or backyard? Stepping-stones are a great way to add your personality to your garden or backyard! Craft stores sell stepping-stone kits. However I have discovered that the quality of the materials do not last. Additionally, rather than spending up to twenty dollars on purchasing a stepping-stone at your local nursery, you can create your own masterpiece for less than five dollars each.

• Concrete mix (from craft store)
• Metal or aluminum cooking pan or mold
• Large mixing spoon
• Large mixing bowl
• Plastic gloves
• Protective eye-wear (optional)
• Non-stick cooking spray, such as Pam (vegetable oil will also suffice)
• Water

Step 1: Find a mold

Find a metal or aluminum mold at your local grocery or craft store. You can get creative by using irregular shapes and sizes, seeing as there is a large amount of options. In fact, even cake and pie pans will suffice. If this is your first time making a stepping-stone, I recommend using a mold no larger than 9x13 inches.
