DIY lovers who want to try my pieces out is one of my favourite parts of creating new things, and this project was no exception.

Let's make DIY Concrete Candle Holder from a Plastic Bottle
Mix the cement: Mix your DIY fine particle cement to the right consistency!
cut the bottle: Use your utility knife to cut your plastic bottle in half and then use your scissors to trim the bottom half down to just a little taller than the height you want your actual candle holder to be.
Oil the molds: Use your paintbrush to coat both the outside of your tea light candle’s little metal tray and the inside of your bottle half in oil in order to prevent the concrete mix from sticking to them as the piece dries.
Pour cement: Fill your halved water bottle with your concrete mix! Once you’ve filled it to your heart’s content, tap the bottom of the bottle on your table.
Remove from molds: When your whole concrete piece has dried thoroughly, remove any tape you place across the top of the bottle.
