Finally, the DIY concrete stepping stones are finished! It was an urgent project because when we first came into this rental home, we couldn't use the front door to enter and exit.
Stepping stones are sometimes referred to as garden stones, paving stones, or pathway stones. Regardless of the term, they have one important objective –to help get you from spot A to spot B.
Materials For Making DIY Concrete Stepping Stones
– Sand Topping Mix – Dust mask – Fabric pegs/stakes – Vinyl furniture strapping – Large mixing bin – Trowel – Hoe
Step 1. Prep The Space
The path was already there but was covered in pebbles, so I shoveled all the loose pebbles out the areas I would be placing the stones.
Step 2. Put Together The Stepping Stone Mold
Tape the ends of the vinyl straps together. This was the key to achieving the natural shape and giving increased durability to the Stepping Stones.
Step 3. Mix The Concrete
Using the hoe, mix the concrete with water. It will be easier and less dusty if you first add some water to your mixing bin or wheelbarrow.
