DIY Spooky Stepping Stones

I love to decorate for Halloween, despite the fact we generally do not get many trick-or-treaters.  As a member of Rust-Oleum's Creators Studio, I received a pack of Testors Spray Chalk for a project challenge.  Initially, I was kind of stumped what to do with it, other than draw on the driveway.  But then I came up with an idea to make designs on our flagstone pavers, using a stencil.

So what is spray chalk, you might ask?  It is a washable chalk formula in a spray can, that is non-toxic and dissolves in the rain.  It is safe for vegetation and use around pets and you can use it on grass, asphalt, and even snow!  My pack contained four colors: pink, yellow, blue, and white.  You can even mix the colors to create additional colors. (yellow and blue make green!)

I found some Halloween window cling designs online to cut out on my Cricut machine.  Once I weeded off the window clings, I used the outline as a stencil.

I simply cut around the designs, laid them on the paver stones, and sprayed the chalk spray.  I let it dry for a few minutes then sprayed a second coat to achieve a full coverage look.  I realize I should have laid newspaper down to avoid the over-spray frame around the designs, but I will remember that for next time.

The result is unique and fun stepping stones to add a bit of whimsey to my front entry!

  1. Oh, this is such a neat idea! I would have been stumped at first, too. I love that the chalk is in an aerosol can! I could see this being great for birthday parties, etc., if you wanted to color the grass, especially since it'll wash away.
