How To Make Cement Candle Holders

I absolutely love this idea! These DIY cement candle holders are just so bulky and solid looking. I know something similar at the store would easily cost $30 or more. Especially a detailed one with accent pebbles. Head on over to the Centsational Girl’s blog for the full tutorial. Enjoy!

Supplies to recreate:

  • Plastics in various sizes for outside mold.  They can be storage containers, deli containers, or juice jugs
  • Yogurt cups for inside mold
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Plastic sheeting
  • Rapid set cement mix from home improvement store (I recommend the 55 lb. bag over the 10 lb. box if you want to do more than just a few small tea light candleholders.)

  • Measuring cup
  • Sanding pad
  • Latex gloves
