DIY | concrete paperweights7.20.2016
i'm actually melting at my desk this week- wowzers it's hot. todays DIY is a super quick one cause i want to get outside and hunt down some ice cream!
a few weeks ago i made some concrete vases (remember those?) well after i'd finished dipping them i had a leftover container of wet cement. i didn't really want to waste it so i hunted in my cupboards for something i could use it with.
...see where i'm going here?
cue my alphabet mould! i basically poured all the wet cement into the letters- easy peasy.
the mix was just dry cement and water, the cement cures in a day or two but i left mine a good week before i removed the letters (just to be extra sure i wouldn't snap them!)
i love these little concrete letters, i'm using mine as paperweights cause i always have loads of notes and press releases cluttering up my desk.
definitely a fun way to use up a leftover batch of cement!
do you like them?
