We have a beautiful and simple DIY project today sent to us from Heather Payne Photography. It’s always so fun to share easy tutorials with you, and you’re likely to have all of the ingredients for this DIY Concrete Candle tutorial in your garage! If you’re planning a minimalist-inspired wedding, these candles would make the perfect addition to a tablescape paired with different colors and textures. We love the idea of combining the hard texture of these candles with soft garlands and greenery. The addition of shiny or metallic textures would give these candles a layer of elegance on top of their simplicity and originality. Keep reading for the list of materials and step by step tutorial.
1 bag of concrete (with sand)
A mound to cast in (we used an empty tall soda can)
A spoon Paint Stick or dowel rod Scissors (or utility knife)
1. To begin, cut the top off of your soda can to prepare a workable space.
2. Add a small amount of water into can.
3. Add a cup of concrete mix and stir.
4. Continue to add in concrete dust and water (repeating steps 2 & 3) until the concrete mix and water becomes thick. (The less soupy the mix, the stronger the cast)
5. Using a paint stick or dowel rod, tap up and down shaking your mold gently. This will even out the concrete.
