Garden stepping stones are easy to make, no Fancy Mold is required. You can do this with a non-stick cake pan. Place your beach garden stepping stones anywhere in your yard, as accent pieces, or, of course, lay them out as a walk way. Sea glass pieces were used to make these stepping stones.

Sea Glass Stepping Stone
Another beautiful example, using mostly seaglass, comes from Lovely Greens. For this stepping stone extra wire is used to give it more stability.

Mix up a batch of mortar (which is cement mixed with an aggregate), pour it into a mold (here a foil pan was used), then decorate with shells, sea glass or beach pebbles, and let dry. Easy.
