Decorative Cake Pan Stepping Stones

I wanted to make unique garden ornaments so I started locating cake pans with specific designs, like Tweety or Sylvester, and making concrete decorations from them. I paint them and have unique ornaments no one else has in their yard.

What a great idea. There should be a way to line the pans so you could use them again. I'd much prefer

"keeping"my Wilton pans for baking. If I had any! LOL.

Thanks for sharing

Line it with saran wrap. Make sure when you put the concrete in you pat it down to get into all the nooks of the mold.

That's a great idea! We have a new grassless spot between the back door and the wood shed and I've wanted some stones forhis and just mighttry this idea. I don't have any pans but I'll bet I could find some at Godwill. I think I'd like several designs but I could use just plain round pans.

Awesome idea!

You could add outdoor craft paint for some colorful fun. It is sold in most craft stores and is intended for outdoor on concrete, etc.

You can actually use anything almost for a mold. I have used plastic take out containers also. If you want to save your mold where the concrete does not touch the mold line it with plastic wrap or a thin plastic bag, just make sure all of the creases are out first. To get bubbles out of the concrete is fill the mold half way first and use a massager (like for your back) right beside the mold and the vibration gets the bubble to come up from the bottom to the middle where no one will see them and then add the rest of the concrete.

I love this idea but what kind of paint do you use so that you can leave them outside and possibly walk on them as stepping stones?

Love your idea. There are people at craft fairs that sell these concrete stepping stones for a small fortune. There plastic molds that are sold for doing stepping stones. But this is genuis. Kudos to you.

Craft: Decorative Cake Pan Stepping Stones

It is time to get out in the garden. I wanted some new decorative stepping stones. My patient, wonderful husband dragged out some ProFinish Quikrete blended mason mix (80 pound) and mixed up a batch.

Using a Wilton cake pan (I don't plan to use again), he used it as a concrete mold. We let the mold dry for two days and it came right out. As you can see it turned out really well.
