Make Stepping Stones For The Garden

Anything that you put your hand to always feels more rewarding so I can understand why you would want to make stepping stones for the garden, yourself.


There is a great feeling of reconnecting with the earth when you make your own garden ornaments and you can choose from a variety of stepping stone kits which I share with you below.

For some ideas and to get started straight away, take a look at these kits to make stepping stones.

You’ll want to consider the style of garden you currently have or are creating when you select your kit as some stepping stones will look better than others based on style and garden design.

You will also want to consider whether you will be making a straight path or random steps and the location of the stepping stones. Making stepping stones for the garden yourself can be made especially easy when you buy your kit online.

Stepping stones can add interest to a garden as well as functionality.  I have to say I’m a big fan of the idea.

Stepping Stone Designs

Have a browse through the pictures I’ve provided to get some idea of the type of kit you want, to make stepping stones. I’ve searched and provided information on four stepping stone designs to help you with your search.

I love the mosaic look and you’ll find that it matches most garden designs. The great thing when you make stepping stones out of mosaics is that you can create a design that is individual and alter it to suit your garden. These are also great as garden wall plaques or bird baths and I’ll be sharing bird bath designs in another article in the near future.

Just be aware that this product contains silica sand known to the state of California to cause cancer so you need to be careful in the handling and using of silica. This is especially so if you have children around who may not be aware of the dangers.

This next design can be done on your own but if you have kids then they will love getting involved and I am a big believer in getting the kids outdoors whenever possible.

This is also great as a personalized gift for a family member or friend.

As many people have done when they purchase this kit to make garden stepping stones, you can purchase the stamps to change the design for the face of the stone.


For something a little bit different than the above two stepping stone kits I have shared above, have a look at what this next kit does. You can also see some other pictures here to see stepping stone designs. The picture here shows the random mold but you also have another to choose from which you can see if you click on the link provided above. This product has great reviews and is great for curved paths. The kit contains:

  • A reusable mold – random or Belguim pattern depending on the one you choose to buy

You also have the option of taking your time with this one if weather is a problem as you don’t need to make them all at once.
