Steampunk Stepping Stones

Saved to Idea Box. Organize
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!

    • Jennifer & Kitty O'Neil

      Great question, Victor! We used Quikcrete and it is holding up well so far. So sorry your leaf step stones broke -- sounds like a lovely idea!

  • Janis K Harrison

    I'd rather make wind chimes out of them ...

  • Nancy Spencer Blanchard

    I love this idea! I have keys that I save to make frogs out of terra cotta pots & the keys are the toes. Sounds easy I will try it & try the pizza box too! Thank you!

    • Jennifer & Kitty O'Neil

      Your frog idea sounds so cute! What a fun idea! We hope your stepping stone turns out great, too!

  • Diana Lynn

    A much better finish is achieved by putting your items on contact paper and putting it at the bottom of the mold. Contact paper is to hold items in place. Tapping the concrete filled mold on a hard surface (sidewalk, workbench) helps smooth out the

    • Jennifer & Kitty O'Neil

      That is genius, Diana! We are absolutely trying that with our next stepping stone. Thank you so much for sharing!!
