Hey everyone! It’s Lindi, back again from Love Create Celebrate to share another quick DIY project. Last month I shared my first project, which were these fun square napkin rings, and this month I’m getting dirty with concrete! Have you noticed concrete decor sneaking into homes more and more lately? I can’t get enough! I love the look of concrete pieces. When done in the right way, a concrete vase or coaster doesn’t have to be cold, but can look sleek and modern! Just like this stylish soap dish or this modern concrete candle.
Here’s what you need to make these little guys:

How to make your concrete coasters:
Start by mixing your concrete with water in a bowl according to the directions on the package.
When you get a smooth consistency, pour the concrete mixture into your molds and shake the mold lightly, until the concrete sits flat.
When the concrete is ready, about 45 minutes later, you can pop them out of the molds.
Use a concrete sealer to seal and protect your coasters from future, inevitable spills.
If you want to add some colour, you can use painter’s tape to mark out lines and paint a section or two. I used my favourite Americana Decor colours :)
To protect your table surfaces, you can add felt pads, that you can find at any hardware store, to the bottom of your concrete coasters.
I love the end result! What do you think? Could you see yourself using these guys? I might just make a few extras for Christmas gifts this year :)
If you’re a visual learner (like me!) you might enjoy this quick video of the entire tutorial :)
Thanks for watching!
