I have found yet another way to use my number stencils and this project could not be any easier of faster! We did some Spring yard cleaning this weekend and one of areas we attacked was a small garden off of our deck with a doorway that leads to the back of our garage. It’s an area that gets way too much sun and by the summertime it turns into a weed festival. We cleaned it up, put down some landscape fabric to control the weeds and then covered with a layer of pine bark mulch. Much improved. I had 3 round cement stepping stones that looked way too “industrial” leading to the garage door and decided to decorate them up bit.
I simply gave each cement stone (which you can get at the Home Improvement store for cheapness) a nice coat of black spray paint. I painted the tops and sides but left the bottom side alone.
After they dried, I stenciled on my numbers with a creamy colored acrylic craft paint. That’s it!
Here is one of them close-up. I am expecting that these will last many years because I have a flat stone in my garden that my son painted for me many years ago using craft paints. It’s at least 10 years old now and a bit faded but I can still see the lion he painted on it for me.
Easy as 1, 2, 3. :)
