Let me show you in this video, how to create this very cool concrete gift idea, that you can improve on to turn it into gift ideas for weddings, fairy gardens, use them as place-mats for guests indoors or outdoors, rest assure that nobody will have this, concrete décor idea, I tried for the first time.
What you will need to create this fabulous concrete tile:
- Concrete mix, three parts plaster sand , one and a half parts cement mix thoroughly with water to fit the size of your project, you could be making concrete coasters from plastic patterned coasters, pleas judge for yourself how much concrete you will need, always have other options available in case, you make too much concrete.
- Plastic Patterned Mats rubbed with oil.
- Containers for your project, it could be a box like I used, or an old tray, porridge bowls etc. Look at my video again if you feel uncertain and then plan your project according to your own idea.
Paint, Cold glue, paint brushes, and water, copper, silver or gold powder are optional you could use very fine glitter instead.
Look carefully at your design and decide how colorful you want your concrete project to be, I like the look, feel and smell of concrete, I allow it show through the color I choose for all my projects. Concrete makes me feel solid and grounded; I find it a very gentle and versatile medium to work with.
Concrete is very patient and if you are new to working with concrete you will love it, if you think you have messed up, break it apart within twenty four hours, make it fine with a hammer add water, mix thoroughly and start over or create something new.
You may want to add ribbon to your concrete gift, use a glue gun to glue the ribbon into place or if you want your ribbon to be part of your project use cold glue and you may even paint glue over the ribbon to make it last longer.
