How to Make Stepping Stones

Sherri Osborn
Homemade step stones are a great way to personalize your garden, walkway, or yard. They make great gifts and are also great keepsakes if they are made using kid's hand prints or footprints or special mementos.

I ran across garden stepping stone kits at a nearby craft store for around $20.00 (this makes one stepping stone). I decided to NOT use a kit because it would have been too expensive to make several. Instead, I ran to a few different stores to gather the items I felt I needed; believe it or not, the supplies to make ONE of my stones ended up costing me around $3.00.

Let me tell you what I used and help you decide what you want to use...
