With all this time on our hands owing to the current nationwide lockdown, why not do a bit of DIY?
Social media sensation Mrs Hinch, A.K.A Sophie Hinchliffe, has done just that, by making garden stepping stones out of old tiles.
The cleaning guru often posts tips and tricks on how to keep a tidy home but this time took to her garden to share footage of a craft project with her 3.2 million followers, and it looks easy enough to try.
First the Essex-based beauty shared a picture of a bag of mixing cement then added water to it and stirred it in a bucket with a very long stick.
She captioned the footage: “So the sink splash back tiles from my old kitchen? Garden stepping stones! Let’s see how these turn out?” alongside a string of emojis.

Her next step was to cover some circular metal pots in cling film, explaining that “using cling film hoping it’ll make it easier to get them out”.
The blonde bombshell then jokingly added: “Now I think most people film content like this once they know the outcome! I have no idea what these will turn out like if I’m honest.”
Mrs Hinch then poured the cement into the pots slowly, being careful not to spill any on the white table cloth, and then placed the tile pieces in random pattern on top of the mixture.
She then captioned the demonstration: “pouring the cement in! And simply pushing the tile pieces in gently! We even mixed the cement up with a stick it’s all we had.”
The best friend of Stacey Solomon added that placing the tiles in cement was “actually really therapeutic!"
She continued: "Also it’s a fun activity for the kids maybe! Use stones, gems, pebbles anything!”
She then left them to set, and promised to check on them when they were ready the next day.
However, the leftover tile fragments did not go to waste; she used them for her plants, explaining: "Also using some of the tiles to pop in the bottom of my new pots for drainage! Thanks for this tip guys!!”
We can't wait to see what the finished product will look like, but either way we are sure Mrs Hinch won't be too disappointed as today is one of celebration because her new book is out.
It's called The Little Book of Lists and is described by the author as being: “A whole book filled with just lists! Notebook goals! My idea of absolute heaven!”
The best part is that its currently half price on Amazon, at just £6.49. Hooray!
