DIY Cement Pillow Candle Holders

By -

Hey Everyone! I am so excited about today’s post. You know those ideas that you see and want to make and you just keep thinking about them but never actually make them happen? These DIY cement pillow candle holders were definitely one of those ideas for me. I am so glad that I finally gave them a try. They were way easier than I imagined they would be and they are way cooler looking than I had even hoped.

Step One: Mix the cement according to the directions on the packaging. Ideally it should be the consistency of peanut butter.

Step Two: Fill a sandwich bag 3/4 the way filled with cement.

Step Three: Zip the bag closed. Shake it to get the air bubbles out and lay it on it’s side.

Step Five: Once it is dry, cut the sandwich bag and remove the hardened cement that is in the shape of a pillow!

Step Six: The fun part: decorating the pillows! I used DecoArt Metallic Luster in the awesome color of Brilliant Turquoise for one and painted on with Americana Multi-Surface in Blue Lagoon. Last but definitely not least, I covered one with Ikat Decou-Page papers using Gloss Decou-Page.

A totally new use for sandwich bags, am I right? Cement used to intimidate me, but recently I have been brave and giving it a try. We made these awesome vases out of cement last week- how awesome are they??
