    I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I had a hair brained idea to make Mickey Mouse Stepping Stones with 3 round (2 small 1 big) containers. I also found some beautiful mosiac round stones at Hobby Lobby. We put the round stones in the shape of Mickey into the concrete. My DD's and I completed the project tonight. I will post pictures when they have finished setting. I'm so excited!!!

    Has anybody else tried this project?

    Maybe they didn't come out too good? Anyone else tried this idea?

    I made some using cement and the plastic plates they give you with a kids meal at WDW. I couldn't decorate them since I used the bottoms (what was on the bottom of the plate) as the top of the stepping stone.
    I have wanted to try and place decorations such as shells and colored stones in the plate before pouring the cement but I ran out of cement and haven't gotten to Home Depot in a while. I can't post a photo because I am computer illiterate but will try to get someone else to do it soon.

    Both projects came out great! I think I can attempt the stepping stones...no way on the topiary!:rotfl:

    I am heading to WDW in about a week and will try to bring home the kids meal plate for a mold.:)
