Garden mosaic stepping stone

Spring is already here and my Must Make This Someday List is really filling up. I totally have ‘eyes bigger than my stomach’ syndrome when it comes to crafting. So I’ve decided to round up another DIY or Buy this time featuring three DIY stepping stone tutorials *plus* some cute handmade options to buy.

You can buy the stepping stone supplies bundle or basic mosaic stepping stone kit for 20% off at Roberts Crafts using the promotion code “merrimentdesign.” Hooray!

First up: here’s how to make a DIY hummingbird garden stepping stone like the one I made for my dad:

Next: simple, lovely DIY lettered garden stones by Prudent Baby. Jacinda made hers using oiled mini-loaf pans from her kitchen and letter stamps.

And for an even more earthy feel, Jeffery Bale shows you how to create DIY pebble stepping stones like these:

Like I said, I want to make all these versions (someday). Luckily in the meantime, Natasha Ayers makes colorful stained glass 12″ stepping stones that you can buy like this yellow sunflower…
