Have you broken a piece of your favourite china? Here’s one way you can still ‘keep’ those precious teacups and saucers – make gorgeous stepping stones!
It’s an easy cement project even the big kids can help you with.
You can get stepping stone kits from your local hardware store or you can simply use Quikrete (if you already have some) and repurpose an old cake pan for the mold. If you have some kind of inexpensive thin plastic tray, you can use that too!
Now to make this project really safe for use as an actual stepping stone, you can seal it with acrylic/resin similar to what is done with custom tables like this DIY bottle cap table. This will prevent injury from the sharp edges of the broken china pieces. And while the resin is still tacky, sprinkle a good and even amount of sand over it so that it doesn’t get slippery when wet!
Want stepping stones like this but don’t have any broken china? Go to a thrift store or garage sales where you can often buy good but cheap pieces of china! :)
