We Made Stepping Stones!

started with fast setting concrete mix
just add water and here we go

planter trays I saved from all the plants 
we've bought - we lined with a black
plastic trash bag

mixed it up and poured it in
waited about 1 1/2 hours and

we have a new stepping stone
with a pretty pattern on it

made 6 this first time around
not all perfect by any means

but the dark oak gel stain brought
the pattern out on all of them and 
covered up some problem areas

got them laid in the garden and mulched in

we are so happy with them all and will
definitely make more for the rest of the garden
