Foot-shaped stepping stones add a bit of whimsy to the garden and are inexpensive to make. Finding the mold to make them in may require some detective work. Sleuth around the local home improvement and specialty stores, or do an Internet search--the molds are available.
Cut the hardware cloth slightly smaller than the mold, using scissors, and set aside.
Mix cement according to package directions. For a rough texture on the stepping stone, add pea gravel as desired. If the weather is extremely cold, use hot water. In extremely hot weather use cold water, or add ice cubes to the mix. Mix the cement to a batter consistency.
Pour half of the mixture into the mold.
Place the hardware cloth that was set aside on top of the poured cement.
Pour the other half of cement in the mold. Gently tap the mold on a hard surface to remove any air bubbles that will compromise the strength of the stepping stone. Allow the stepping stone to dry for at least 48 hours before removing it from the mold.
Remove the stone from the mold. Place one hand on the open side, turn it over and the stepping stone should fall out of the mold automatically. If not, tap on the mold gently to release it.
Set the foot-shaped stepping stone in flush with the ground to avoid tripping.
