Inexpensive frame from Dollar Store or craft store
A photo of someone of love
I spruced up a plain black frame by gluing hearts on each of the corners. I found a frame with a cut-out of a heart in the center which I glued a sheet of black and white scrapbook paper to. I then glued on a few hearts creating a perfect Valentine’s Day gift!
This is as simple as arranging the stones in any pattern or spacing that feels right to you and then adhering them with your glue of choice.
I chose a few different words for my mirror but you could use all of one word like “Love” to make a statement in a master bedroom or “Laugh” for a child’s room. Let your imagination run wild and have fun! ~Suzi
So I decided to see what I could create using our stones and tokens and some store bought plaster. My plaster was actually a large stepping stone kit that I portioned into smaller amounts so I could make multiple items.
If you have never used plaster before (which I hadn’t) let me tell you it dries fast! Before you begin mixing it make sure you know what design you are creating on the stones. I ended up making 4 small stones which can be used as paperweights or markers for your garden.
As far as the how to on this one, I basically just followed the directions for mixing the plaster and then as soon as I had my forms molded I placed the different items into the plaster before it had any chance to dry. I did pour some of the mix into large cookie cutters to help with a couple of the shapes, the others were formed by hand.
After I let all the stones dry I used paint to add a little more color to the stones.
These easy to create pieces can make great gifts, wonderful memorials, or just a nice project for a rainy day!
Have fun and use your imagination…the possibilities are endless! ~Suzi
