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.

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 :)

  1. Hello, Lindi!

    My wife and I are on the look out for diy home decors since we are planning to have our house remodelled before the year ends–also stuffing away old boring stuff from the house! We think these concrete coasters are perfect and unique additional to our soon-to-be projects. Thank you for sharing!
