Having a DIY project is a perfect way to keep yourself busy and distracted from life’s usual stresses. It is also a way to keep your mind and body active without leaving your home and spending more money. One DIY project that you can focus on is DIY concrete projects and here are some projects that you can start with.
Phone or Tablet Stand
Concrete projects at home don’t need to be big like a driveway or patio. Start with small ones like a tablet or phone stand. To make a stand, get a popcorn or milk box. Use it to mold your stand. Add a tile or metal to serve as a ledge. You can make any phone stand shape as long as you have something to mold it with like a box or a container.
Do you love the idea of something unconventional in your room? How about making a concrete pendant lamp? For this DIY concrete project, you can take advantage of your empty bottles (mineral water or plastic soda bottles) and use them for molding your pendant lamp. You can choose the size and length of your lamp.
Since you are using concrete, you can add more style by stamping it or spraying it with different colors.
Big and Small Bowls/Pots
Concrete bows and pots can be a good addition to your patio setup. You can have different sizes of bowls for different occasions. If you love having barbecue parties and a good drink with your friends, you no longer have to worry about breaking some of your mom’s previous bowls.
Instead of buying pots and vases for your outdoor plants, you can start making your statement with your DIY concrete pots. You can also choose the finishing color that you want to use.
Instead of buying a set of bar stools or bucket stools for your outdoor deck, you can start making your set of concrete stools. Concrete stools are easy to make and you will just need wooden dowels, concrete, and a bucket (to mold your stool with).
Candle or Pen Holder
Are you always looking for something to put your candle with every time you need to light one? Then it is time to make your concrete candle holder. You will just need a cup to mold your candle holder and you are good to go.
This candle holder can also be used as a pen holder. You might need a taller cup to use as a mold if you want to use it as a pen holder.
Do you find your backyard muddy every time it rains? DIY concrete stepping stone can be your next project. You can use a tray to mold your stepping stone. Start with five stepping stones and see if it is enough to save you from your muddy walkway. You can also add concrete stepping stones to your garden to keep your feet off the grass and flowers.
Technology has changed the way concrete is now being used in construction works. With decorative concrete designs, you can easily create a project that can easily fit your taste. Have you decided yet which project to start with?
