DIY bricks made of mortar with embellishments of your choosing. Use small tiles, jewelry, shells, pebbles, beads, glass stones for the dollar store and other found objects.
Dig a trench. To start the trench I used 2 large nails (one at either end) attached to a 40″ string and marked my circle with spray paint to start.
After the trench was dug used regular bricks as my base.
Started with food storage containers from Dollar Tree store. Try to find a container that does not tapper. Equal (as much as possible) in size at bottom and top. Coat container with Petroleum Jelly or cooking spray so the mortar brick will slip out of the mold.
The containers I used are 5.5″ x 6.5″ x 4″ tall. I filled them 1.5 to 2″, depending on how much mortar I had mixed. They don’t have to be all the exact same size.
After they are removed from mold, continue to wet them down. This helps to cure the mortar.
