More Garden Stones. Yes, I know…I’m Obsessed.

Stepping Stones 2 029

Now these were quick, cheap, fun, and easy! I made these address stones for a couple of my friends.

These paver stones are so cheap. I got them at Lowe’s for only $1.12 each!!! Unbelievably cheap.

Black spray paint, vanilla colored acrylic craft paint and some stencils is all you need!

I love these. I made one for myself too. And wouldn’t these make a nice Housewarming gift?

I am linking up to Tales From Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday. Come say Hi to Leigh and checkout some more "thrify-ness".

I am a believer that if you come up with a good idea why not spread it around. These are so cute.

Too cute! Yea, they would make the perfect housewarming gift. Thanks for the idea! Oh, do you have to seal them after stenciling or is the craft paint safe from the elements? Thanks!

What a GREAT idea!
In a courtyard at our church families have engraved pavers in memory of a family member-
it creates a lovely quiet space.
Family names would be fun too-

Hey Lisa! I LOVE your stones - the first set you made, too. I can't wait to try this idea. I'll be heading to Lowes this weekend for supplies, and those pavers are on my list.

Oh, and your daughter's cupcakes turned out so cute. I just love the life saver holding the candle.

Thanks for sharing.

I usually like to leave better comments but...

L-O-V-E sums it all up!

I am making one today!

Kristi said...

Wonderful idea! My sister just bought a new house and they're moving in tomorrow. I think I know what I'll be making today!

Mrs. H said...

i love them!!! how did you hang them???

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Thanks everyone for the compliments. You know how I like to take a new idea and run with it!
Mrs. H: I didn't hang the address stone although the photo is deceiving. They were just sitting on my deck when I took the photo. They will end up sitting in a garden somewhere!

Nancy: I am not sure if you need to seal them...I did not seal mine. I guess time will tell!

Jane: I got the number stencils from www.maisondestencils.com and the letters from
http://www.stencilsonline.com/alphastencils.html

Hope I answered all your questions.
