Create a chic DIY concrete bread basket.
Learn how to turn concrete into a beautiful DIY project you can use around the house.
When it comes to DIY projects, some results are sturdier than others. One of the strongest materials you can work with is concrete, which isn’t just meant for sidewalks. In her new book, Making Concrete Pots, Bowls, & Platters: 35 stylish and simple projects for the home and garden, Hester van Overbeek teaches how to use concrete in beautiful and functional pieces—everything from planters and mugs to coasters and vases. Here’s a bread basket project, to give you a taste of what you can do with this fun material.
