DIY Concrete Heart and Roses

Like myself, are you the kind of DIY enthusiast who loves making little DIY trinkets for friends and family in order to make them feel appreciated? I’m like that too, so I’m always trying to think of new ideas that I can brighten their day with. Lately, I’ve beenvery obsessed indeed with DIY concrete crafts because there are just so many different things you can make, which is how I found myself practicing with a mould and making a little love trinket! I was so happy with the outcome that I decided to make another one and outline the steps for other people to follow along.

Step 2: mix the concrete

Pour your water into your concrete mixture and stir it with your spoon. Follow the instructions on your packaging to get the correct ratio of water to powder mix, since it can vary from brand to brand.

Step 3: fill the mold

Once your concrete is mixed, spoon it into your mould. Fill the mould to the top, nice and evenly. Set the filled mould aside to dry.

Step 4: remove from mold

Once the concrete in the mould has driedall the way through, carefully pop it out of the casing.

Step 5: paint

Use your find tipped paint brush to fill in the indentations of the letters so the message (mine said “I love you”) stands out nice and clearly against the rest of the concrete heart.

Clean your brush or grab another one and use your red paint to give colour to the raised flowers on your heart.
