Pretty candles and candle holders can spice up any time of the day. These pretty concrete flower votives will make a great center piece or a gift to a loved one. Let’s see how to make one yourself.
Cement/ ready-made concrete mix
Gloves,you don't want to ruin your pretty nails.
Step 1: Prepare the Flower.
Remove the centre in flower and a layer of petals to make room for the candle.
Keep the base so that we have something to paste the petals on.
Hot glue all the petals to the base.
Step 2: Mold Prep.
We need a bowl to mold the flower; I covered the bowl with zip wrap to avoid the cement mess.
Step 3: The Concrete Mix
Mix the cement with water, to make a thick pancake batter like.
Wear gloves to protect your hands, cement ruins your skin.
Step 4: Dip
Dip the flowers in cement; make sure you cover all petals.
And place the flower in the bowl and let dry completely, at least 12 hours.
Step 5: Final Touches,,,
Place the candle in the center of the flower and hot glue in place.
If the petals are showing through just paint on some cement to cover.
That’s done :)
