DIY Concrete Necklace with Glitter

Have you every looked at a home decor element or architectural feature and thought to yourself that you liked it so much you almost wish you could wear a piece of it around each day to show everyone its beauty? Well, the beauty of having crafting skills is that you can always make yourself something inspired by that thing you liked to wear instead! That’s why, when I found myself falling in love with minimalist and industrial chic home decor that uses exposed concrete, I decided to use my DIY skills to create my own concrete necklace, but with a little bit of sparkling flair for extra style.

The finished product actually turned out so nice that a few friends have asked me to make them one since, so I decided to make sure I documented the process for at least one of my glitter and concrete necklaces, just in case any other DIY enthusiasts might want to try their hand at making one too. Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos!

Step 2:

Add water to your DIY fine particle cement powder and mix it with your spoon until you’re free of clumps and have the right consistency! Follow the instructions on the back of your package to get the right ratio of water to mix, since it can vary from brand to brand. Set this aside for a second while you make your cardboard mold; concrete takes a long time to dry, so you’ll have plenty of time without any worry of it drying in your mixing bowl.
