Worried about tripping every time you walk through your dark garden pathway at night?
Sure, solar lights make it easier to install lighting outdoors to solve your problem. But here’s another idea that will also have your garden looking amazing: stepping stones that glow in the dark!
Now there are many ways for you to go about this project.
If you’ve got an existing stepping stone that you don’t want to replace just yet, you can simply use glow-in-the-dark paint or spray paint. You can carve out designs on your stepping stones and apply the glow-in-the-dark medium so that they pop out at night.
You can also start from zero and make a DIY stepping stone. But this time you add glow-in-the-dark powder in your concrete mix. When sourcing for powder, make sure it can be mixed with concrete. Those that contain earth illuminate seem to bring the best quality of glow.
Now how your glow-in-the-dark stepping stone project will turn out will depend on the product and how you use it. There are many brands and types available out there and they all have different applications and directions. So be sure to always follow package instructions! Also, don’t forget to wear protective gear when doing concrete work 😉
