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
- Exterior-grade spray sealant
Make a round concrete stepping-stone using a plastic pot liner -- slightly larger than the print you've chosen -- as a mold.
Allow concrete to dry and cure according to manufacturer's instructions.
