I remember walking in my grandma’s garden and seeing her little turquoise stones, not one of them upturned, sitting beautifully on the ground hugging the earth. She taught me how to make mosaic stepping stones patio blocks. I wanted them for my own.
If you want to make mosaic stepping stones patio blocks, you’ve come to the right place. The steps are very easy and simple. Let’s go through all the benefits and list the steps as well. You are going to be completely delighted to see how easy it really is.
A Lover of Multi-Color
I love multi-colored things, of course. I’m sure somewhere in your cabinets you have china or glass that you don’t necessarily use or want anymore. Put those items to use if you are not going to use them anymore. Don’t let them just sit there collecting dust.
You can use marble or anything that you can get little piece from. Take a plate, for example, and drop that thing on the floor like it owes you money. Girl, you don’t play with your money. Collect the pieces carefully. Place them in a safe container for later use.
A Pile of Style
You are going to make something beautiful. Let’s just take a moment to reflect on that. Your stepping stones are going to be as path of love and happiness for as long as you keep them. They will make a very memorable lasting impression on everyone.
You will need some nasty mortar and grout which you can get at any home store really. You are absolutely going to look past having to get your hands dirty after you see the finished product. You are certainly going to fall in love with your gorgeous little stones.
Round on the Ground
It’s all good when you get that round concrete block. They certainly aren’t hard to find. This will be your foundation. This is the first thing that you are going to have to deal with. So you want to make sure you get this material and that it is sturdy and to your liking.
A concrete block is just the start, but you want to make sure you have all of your other pieces and materials ready when you get it because you don’t want to waste your time forgetting anything. Just take your time and work at your own pace. There’s no rush.
Now it’s time to actually make it. You don’t have to fake that you don’t know what you’re doing because now you do. It’s super easy. Just soak your concrete block in water. Place mortar all around it in different strokes (Whatcha talkin’ bout Willis) and different directions.
Arrange your pieces of china as desired. Rub grout all around it. Then, let them dry for about 24 to 48 hours before anyone steps on them or anything gets dirty. The most important step of them all is to simply enjoy your patio stepping stones.
Walk it Out
Now that you know all there is to know about making these beautiful little stepping stones, you can make them left and right, sell them, and do whatever you want with them. It’s time to walk it out. Walk with style. Show them who’s boss and who runs this town.
You must be already enjoying your stones because you just couldn’t wait to get your hands on them and start making them for your very own patio. You’ve got guests coming over and they are going to need to dry. So go ahead and get them now. Join the step team. Happy stepping!
