Stepping Stone Hack

2 Materials
Make a boring walkway into an interesting look of flagstone and slate stones.
boring concrete walkway. Do you want to add some flair? I purchase a "walkway mold" for about $12 at Home Depot, and 4 colors of spray paint. I chose brick red, slate grey, white, and dark brown.
Place mold on the walkway, and randomly spray paint the cut-outs the colors you chose. Move the mold/stencil down the walkway, spraying each section, as you go.
Almost done. If you notice bare spots, you can always touch up by re-placing the stencil and spraying again.
This is the completed look.
Suggested materials:
  • 4 cans of spray pain (various colors) for out door projects   (Home Depot)
  • Pathway Maker mold/stencil   (Home Depot)

    After our front walkway was repaired it was left with two different colors of cement (the original and the new) and this is the perfect project for it. Thank you for sharing your idea.
