Using Broken Plates and a Cake Pan!
Grab a cake pan and get cooking … on these gorgeous garden stones.
The project is by Christina of Intimate Weddings. “They’re inexpensive to make – and they don’t require much skill,” she says. “And you won’t even ruin the pan!”
round non-stick cake pan
cloth bag or towel
Optional items include a mosaic glass cutter and sea glass. Also, you could choose a different shaped pan, say, square or heart.
Wearing your safety glasses, smash your plates inside the bag or wrapped in a towel. Cut the contact paper to fit your pan.
With the sticky side up, press your plate pieces and sea glass, if using, onto the paper, leaving a little room for the concrete. Remember as you’re doing this that the front of your design is the side facing down.
When you’re happy with the look, line your pan with petroleum jelly, cut the wire mesh to fit inside the pan, and put on your mask to mix your concrete.
Trowel some concrete into the pan on top of your design about halfway up. With your gloves on, spread it evenly then press the mesh you cut into it. Cover the mesh with more concrete.
Now you wait. It will take a couple of days to set up.
This is the result – beautiful!
