DIY CE­MENT VASES

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR HOME -

Use left­over ce­ment from build­ing projects to up­cy­cle old plas­tic bot­tles as moulds for vases

YOU'LL NEED: A craft knife, one large and one small plas­tic bot­tle (to cre­ate the hol­low), ce­ment mix, a jug or mixing bowl, sand­pa­per and paint.

HOW TO: SLICE tops off bot­tles. POUR ce­ment into a mixing bowl or jug, then pour some into the larger bot­tle. Place the smaller bot­tle in­side the big­ger one and lift it be­fore start­ing to pour so that you have a ce­ment base. DRY for 24 hours. SLICE off bot­tle moulds to re­veal vase. Use sand­pa­per to re­move any jagged edges. PAINT with your favourite colours and fill with flow­ers.
