DIY Stepping Stones
On the Wednesday before Fathers Day, my youngest daughter and I decided we would embark on a project for my husband who is an avid gardener and claims the garden for him is the best place on earth. We decided to make these stepping stones as a Fathers Day gift.
I read a lot of tutorials and decided on a method. The picture tutorial below explains what we did.
The result of our first DIY stepping stones?
Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but my hubbs loved them ( I think just because we made them lol)
The first pour was the best, the star flower and the moon and stars, the second pour was a bit too thick resulting in the pebbles moving and therefore the designs are not as distinct. We are not deterred though! Next time we are going to try and pour the cement first, place wire, second pour of cement and then pebbles on top and see if that works better. It will added some sun reflection and sparkle to our garden.
Stay tuned! We will perfect this! If at first we do not succeed...... try and try again!!
Happy Fathers Day to all those daddy's out there ❤️❤️

These stepping stones will surely be appreciated because these were done with love and effort from the people he loves the most. It's really cute and done in a creative way, that's why I have to commend you for coming up with this idea. Actually, you can just buy gifts and try to eat dinner with him, but you choose to exert more effort because that's what you believe that will make him happy. How I wish my sisters were as thoughtful as you!
