After making so many electronics and cardboard projects, last week I started to play with cement .I had so much fun by experimenting with cement and loved the result so much.In this instructables I will share the procedure to make a beautiful and charming candle holder for your home decoration.

You can use some plastic containers to make the mold/mould.I used a coke bottle and cracked salt container seats inside my garbage bin.

Step 1: MATERIAL AND TOOLS

MATERIALS :

1.Cement

2. Water

3. Plastic coke bottle

4. Small Container / Salt Container

5.Container to prepare concrete (3nos for Water,Cement and Concrete)

6. Petroleum Jelly or oil

7. Spoon

8. Rubber Gloves

9. Small stones

10.Sand Paper and Tissue Paper

TOOLS :

1. Scissors

2. Box Cutter/Paper Cutter/Hobby Knife

awsome and creative!
<p>thank you :)</p>
<p>even tho you are only using a very small amount of cement mix I had to do all the mixing outside as the powdery fumes made my nose itch and eyes water </p>
<p>This is really cute! I don't know much about concrete, can you put water in the candle holder or will it seep into the concrete?</p>
<p>he is not using concrete mix, just cement mix</p>
<p>Thank you :)</p><p>Yes it will seep after a long time.You can apply a coat of plastic paint to prevent any seepage.Good idea If we add water then the light also glitter.</p>
The concrete WILL absorb water. Alight spray of lacquer, or poly will seal it. They also make a concrete sealer, but for this small application it wouldn't be cost effective. Adding a bit of fiberglass insulation to the concert will make it much stronger.

<p>I am really not sure about fibreglass in here (India) its not a very easy find.</p>
Inside the walls of old houses, appliances, under floor mats of old cars. You wouldn't need much.
<p>Thanks for your suggestion.</p>
<p>Nicely done! I take it that you're using cement and not concrete, although people get them mixed up. (Cement is one component of concrete - basically the binder for the aggregate such as sand.) If you're using cement, you might want to change &quot;concrete&quot; to &quot;cement&quot; in your tutorial as it does confuse people who know the difference as to which one you are using.</p><p>Also, incidentally, there are pigments that can be added during mixing to achieve a variety of different colors.</p>
<p>thanks for point out the difference..</p>
<p>Very clever!</p>
<p>:) :)</p>
<p>Very cute! I love how the shape of the holder looks with the pretty flower candle!</p>
<p>Thanks :)</p>
