Design Ideas for Stepping Stones

Updated:2013-09-23 16:19:07

Stepping stones are a unique way to add color and style to your landscaping. Use stepping stones to add creativity to a garden walkway or as a single decorative step in your garden. Painting stepping stones adds color, while marbles, glass beads, shells and other trinkets add personality and texture. Make stepping stones of various sizes to enhance the look of your garden. Display stepping stones both vertically and horizontally for a well-rounded display of artwork.


Use flat stones to create a pathway in your backyard. Use large, flat stones big enough for one or two feet to stand on for a single-person path. Incorporate a natural look by spacing the garden stones so grass or moss can grow between them. Use stones that are the size of your hands and space them about an inch apart to cover a path to be used by several people.

Adding Color
Add color to your stones by using an all-weather paint to color stones of various sizes and place them on your walkway to the garden outside or strategically throughout your backyard. Use a single color or vary the colors of the stones. Paint several small stones all colors of the rainbow. Use waterproof glue to hold small stones in place.
Use buttons, beads, marbles and small glass trinkets to give the stepping stones some texture. Spread a thin layer of wet cement on top of the stones. Press the items into the wet cement in a design of your choice and allow to dry for several days. Use toothpicks, your fingers or a small stick to scrape names into the medium or to trace hands or a date to remember on the stones before placing them in your path or garden.
