Concrete Party Candle Holder

July 4, 2012 |  by  |  Blog, DIY

There is actually a lot more you can do with concrete than building houses and stuff!



Usually, you have everything at home, maybe even the cement.


Mix your concrete and pour it into your cups, stick party candles or a sparkly candle into the concrete. If it’s to fluid, you will have to wait a little or place a cupcake liner on top and stick the sparkler through it so it’s fixed in the center. Let everything dry until hard, usually half a day or even faster if in the sun!



I also used cupcake liners:



After it is hard like a rock, you remove the cup:


and voila:

You can paint it as well…

  2. Great idea Sibylle! Concrete is a cheap and easy to manipulate material, suitable to create tons of stuff! I’d never thought about celebrating with it though, thanks =)

  3. Oh wow I love concrete! Didn’t know it was that easy to manipulate though. I’m inspired to use it for some succulent planters soon. Merci Sibylle!

  12. Be sure to wear eye protection! I have splashed the water I was mixing into my cement and had it burn my eye. The concrete is very, very caustic – highly alkaline, and it burns. I also recommend wearing heavy kitchen gloves.

  13. Particularly love the last shot! Such a great DIY idea-may try for some outside lights-that’s if we ever get a Summer in the UK!!! :-) Caroline
