IMG_0452 (480x640).jpg
With all the excellent entries in the Concrete and Casting Contest I actually feel quite intimidated in making an entry...but I thought...let's give it go and and ended up having so much fun with it!
I have seen garden hollow concrete balls ...I thought that might be an easy project to tackle...while I was at it i thought to try out concrete candle holders too....I fell in love with a concrete table which looked like a table clothe and wanted to try that too..haha...over the top for a nubi right?? exactly! that is another story :-P

The below projects can be done in a weekend...so try it out...if you want to get into the world of concrete for fun!
