When sealed, the fabric edges won't fray and it'll be strong enough to withstand both weather and foot traffic. A round print in bright hues, such as these suzani-style patterns, adds year-round color to the garden.

Tip: Make the stepping-stones about 1 1⁄2 to 2 inches thick, as thinner stones may crack. Lay the stones on smooth ground to prevent breakage. For added strength, place chicken wire in the middle of the concrete as you fill the mold.

What you'll need:

  • Quikrete crack-resistant concrete mix
  • Round plastic pot liner
  • Outdoor fabric
  • Decoupage medium
  • Paintbrush
  • Exterior-grade spray sealant

Step 1

Make a round concrete stepping-stone using a plastic pot liner -- slightly larger than the print you've chosen -- as a mold.

Step 2

Allow concrete to dry and cure according to manufacturer's instructions.

Step 3

Cut fabric to desired-size circle. Cover the surface of the stepping-stone with decoupage medium. Place fabric on the coated concrete.

Step 4

Cover the fabric with decoupage medium. Allow to dry, and apply a second coat. When that coat is dry, spray the entire surface with sealant.
