DIY concrete candle holder for a festive atmosphere at Advent and all year round

When we think of concrete and cement, many of us imagine dreary blocks of flats and boring footpaths. Yet concrete is also a wonderfully versatile material that can be moulded into almost any shape, making it possible to create individual ornaments for the garden, planters or even candle holders. With our concrete ideas, it's easy to achieve fabulous results with modelling concrete and cement. Once the concrete has dried, you can also try masking areas of your candle holders for a different effect. For that extra touch, mask areas of your candle holders when you spray. Use edding Permanent Spray in gold to add a touch of festive spirit. Even when Christmas is over, the rustic charm of these colourfully decorated candle holders will continue to provide a great atmosphere.
