All you need for this project is:

1. old carpet
2. nice round cobbles
3. super glue
4. utility knife

Before starting with this project we recommend that you go to the beach and pick the cobbles that suits you. Best are flat round cobbles because they are most comfortable for walking on them. If you don’t live near the beach you can pick the cobbles from gravel or buy pre selected white cobbles which are used for garden decorating. Use sandpaper to polish the stones and remove al the dirt. After that use the utility knife to cut the old carpet to a shape that you wish. The next step must be done outside or in a room with open windows because the fumes from the glue are toxic. Always start from the middle and then work evenly around. Spread some glue in the middle and then put a small amount of glue on every cobble you put on. Always apply the glue as in the picture below. When you put the last stone on leave it to dry for at least 12 hours before putting it to use.
