Weekender Project: Flower Basket Stepping Stone

Do you ever find yourself rushing through your gardening, weeding and pruning without so much stopping to take a look around and admire your handy work? Just stop and smell the flowers!  With a stepping stone like this, you may never forget.

Create this simple stepping stone in just a few quick steps! Make the flowers by scoring sheets of stained glass or nip stained glass chips, then nip random-sized rectangles for the basket.

For this project you will need:

  • Jennifer’s Mosaics Outdoor Cement
  • 8″ Square Stepping Stone Mold
  • 1 Sheet of Grass Green/Cream Stained Glass
  • 1 Sheet of Red/Orange/Cream Stained Glass
  • 1 Sheet of Yellow Stained Glass
  • 1 Sheet of Honey Wisp Stained Glass
  • 1 Steel Wheel Glass Cutter or oil-fed glass cutter and 1″ Running Pliers or Jennifer’ Mosaics Wheeled Glass Nippers
  • Petroleum Jelly to release the mold and contact paper
