Intro: Concrete Garden Project: House Numbers
It's easy to decorate your exterior by adding large, charming house numbers.
You will need:
- fine concrete
- foam floor puzzle pieces
- piece of board
Step 1: Begin by oiling the board and the edges of the puzzle piece with the paintbrush.
Step 2: Place a few weights on the mold to keep it from moving, then mix the concrete and fill the mold.
Step 3: Level the surface with a spatula, leaving it smooth and neat.
Step 4: Leave the concrete to set for 24 to 48 hours, depending on the size of your number.
Step 5: Carefully remove the mold.
Step 6: Smooth away any sharp edges with a file.
