Giftast Loves… DIY Cement Stuff

If my review of Big Magic (or the book itself) has inspired you to to try something a bit more creative for your wedding, and you fancy something a bit more heavy duty, this could be the one for you!

I haven’t tried this myself yet, but it’s on the list – I’m thinking those little pots with succulents or cacti as a table centre, wedding favour, bridesmaid/groomsman gift? I love the idea of spray painting these in bold colours to fit your theme, and those bottle-shaped vases half-painted with a pastel colour? Gorgeous centrepiece. There are loads of possibilities here, and it’s amazing what you can do with some cement!

How about this for a cute little planter? You could even use these instead of place cards and table favours if you personalised them with guest names… Yeah, that would be a lot of candle holders, even at a small wedding. Maybe just stick with these for gifts for the in laws;)

This video is really great though, as it gives you more safety tips for working with cement, which seem pretty important.

And finally… my Spanish isn’t great, but you get the idea! There lacy little pots look so pretty, and would be really nice painted white and then stippled with copper coloured pain to bring out the pattern…

If you try any of these, I’d love to see the results! Tag me in your photos @giftast, and I’ll share! And if I ever get round to trying them, I’ll show you my results xx
