Upcycled Skip Cobbles

1 Material
Got some broken bits of mixed coloured cobbles and block pavers from a skip.
Sory no step by step instructions but really easy. Just dug down about 2 inches and added a layer of dry mortar.
Layed the cobbles in a cross shape then filled in the 4 corners.
Filled in the gaps with more dry mortar just brushed into the gaps. Also put some large stones and gravel to fill some of the gaps.
When dry and set i painted with a wet look patio sealer to bring out the colours.
They are laid at the base of two bird feeding stations and collect all the fallen seeds etc making it easy to clean up and i think they look quite good. Rustic just my style.
Suggested materials:
  • Cobbles from skip and dry mortar mix. Patio sealer   (Local diy shop)
