Flower Stepping Stones

RUN to your nearest dollar store and pick up some chips and dip trays because I have an awesome project for you.

I’m always excited to share projects on the blog, but this one I am extremely thrilled about.

I’m going to show you how to make these flower stepping stones for your garden using chips and dip trays! You can make three for under $10!
Yes, chips and dip trays!
This projects tutorial is very similar to the Concrete Garden Orb I constructed this past April. Check out that posting here- http://slumberingalligator.com/2015/04/concrete-garden-orb.html
Ok, here’s what you’ll need-
Concrete Mix and Concrete Mixing Supplies
3 Chips and Dip Trays
Non Stick Cooking Spray
First, mix your concrete following the instructions on the bag.

Then, spray the inside of your chips and dip trays with non-stick cooking spray and scoop in concrete until completely full. Gentle shake tray while filling to even concrete mix out.

That’s it!

Let dry completely. Don’t rush this step! I moved one of mine too soon and learned the hard way!

Once dry, pop your flower stepping stones out of their molds and enjoy!

These make a lovely accent in the garden.
Here’s a video tutorial (with a few extra tips) of me making them on Hallmark’s Home & Family.

  1. I would love to try this but have never worked with concrete. Can you give me an idea about how much to mix up for 3 of these, the concrete mix and water amounts? I saw you on Home and Family and absolutely loved these!!!
    Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Wanda! Thank you so much. I can tell you that you won’t need more than one bag to make three stones. I must tell you though that I always kind of just eyeball it and unfortunately can’t tell you an exact ratio. Also, each mix is a little different. I recommend following the instructions on the bag and mixing until you get a smooth consistency. I promise you that it’s not hard and can’t wait to see your finished stones! Please send email me a picture when completed.
