Steampunk Stepping Stones

We love finding old coins and keys at the flea market. We'd been keeping them in jars, until we had the idea to turn them into Steampunk Stepping Stones! Now we get to see our collections on display in the garden!
The project turned out to be so easy, we gathered some sea glass and marbles and made more! Here's how we did it.

The first thing we did was collect keys! We actually have been collecting them for years. They are easy to find at garage sales, flea markets, and even your own junk drawer! (Just make sure you don't still need it them!)
  • steampunk stepping stones, concrete masonry, crafts
To make the stepping stones, we got some concrete mix at the hardware store. You just mix it with water! Easy! (To see the amounts we used, check out the complete instructions on our blog at http://runningwithsisters.com/steampunk-stepping-stone.)

We picked up some molds at the craft store. They came in circles and squares, and they were so cheap we got one of each! Once the concrete was mixed, we just spread the mix into the mold.

Our Steampunk Stepping Stones turned out so cool, we made another batch with colorful flat marbles from the dollar store!
To see the complete how-to, including how to mix the concrete and how to reinforce the stepping stones for heavy traffic, come over to our blog at RunningWithSisters.com. We have loads of flea market projects, and we are always available if you have any questions. Just leave us a comment and we'll reply!
Cheers,

    I've read somewhere that you could use a pizza box as a mold.
