Stone Garden Design

My friend LOVES to make crafts while camping.  With a few supplies she brought from home and some colorful stones she collected from the lake shore, she created this awesome stone design for her garden. 

This is what she did:

  1. She covered half of an old softball with Premixed Adhesive Grout but any size ball will work.
  2. She created a circular design by placing small stones in the grout then randomly placed other stones around it.
  3. She let it dry overnight.
  4. The next day she spread grout on the remaining half of the softball and continued covering it with small stones.
  5. When dry, she sealed it with a clear gloss acrylic coating spray. 
  6. She layered a variety of flat stones in her garden and placed her stone design on the top.
I LOVE her completed creation!

  1. Oh so it only takes a ball and stones to make that awesome garden design stone ball. I was wondering how you did it when i saw the picture. The instructions sound easy so i guess it won't be difficult for me to make one. Now, i just have to look for colored stones. I am really interested in that stone ball.
