Hello friends, I’m super excited to share a new project today! Painted Stepping Stone for your garden!
This Summer I’ve really been trying to do more projects in the yard. Last month I made a DIY Hose Stand and I love how it turned out. So I decided to add some more projects to the yard. This project is perfect if you have a Silhouette or Cricut, OR if your really good at freehand. The possibilities are endless with a project like this!
Painted Stepping Stone
While I was at Wal-Mart I came across these cool round stepping stones for $2.50. I could not pass these cool stones up, I knew I wanted to do some with them for my flower bed. I was originally inspired by PMQ for Two tile makeover she did a couple months ago.
Let’s get started!
Step 1 – Paint Paver
First let’s start off by painting our entire paver! I decided I wanted white for my background color so my colors would really POP.
I used the Outdoor Living paint for this step. I only needed to add two coats for this step!!
Step 2 – Cut and add Stencil
Next it’s time to cut and add our stencil! I found both of these designs in the Silhouette library.
I started off weeding this, but I felt it was easier to add the cut to the paver, then weed it afterwards. It really did make it so much easier.
Step 3 – Weed Vinyl
Now it’s time to weed the entire stencil. Like I said in step 2, it’s so much easier this way.
Step 4 – Paint Stencil
NOW THE FUN PART!! Painting (insert happy dance emoji)!!
I decided to use the Patio Paint for this part, I have so many more color options with these paints.
After the paint has dried (which is pretty fast) it’s time to peel up the vinyl. I made a quick time lapse video for this step on my Instagram page. Make sure to check it out and follow me on Insta if you don’t already!
Step 5 – Fix any Problem Areas
For some reason this stepping stone had some bleeding with the paint in areas. I think because I was making the time lapse video, I was working a little faster then I usually would have and pulled my vinyl up too fast. But it was an easy fix, I just went over the problem areas again with the Outdoor Living paint.
Plus I feel like it gives it a cool aged look.
See how cool that is! I have pretty stepping stone to add in my flower bed.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
