Today's DIY is a super easy one that for real anyone can do. It takes about 10 minutes and the end result is a cool display for your rings.
Now, I'm not going to pretend that we had great success the first time we tried this. We ended up buying the wrong kind of cement to try and make this craft happen, which is something that you cannot do. If you end up at Home Depot or Lowes, be sure to get cement that does not have pebbles in it. Usually there is a bag that another shopper cracked open in order to check the quality before purchase. Something we probably should have done the first time we did this DIY. But hey, the benefit of our fail is that it saves you from making the same mistake!
We are looking forward to seeing your creation and how you improve on our directions! If you decide to make this cement ring display please #bamcocreate so we can see your beauty!
Sakrete Fast Setting Concrete Mix - I actually used Flo-Coat, but I can't find it online. The fast setting is comparable and has really great views. Also $4.97?! Crazy!
Snow Cone Cups - Easy to find and pretty cheap for a whole mess of them. They are sealed on the bottom so you don't have to worry about any leakage happening.
Plastic Cup - You'll get about one crafting period out of this item, but it's cheap and you may have a few hanging out around the house. This will be used to mix your cement and water together.
Water - This is used for mixing with the concrete/cement.
Chopsticks - My trusty ol' tool that I get right from the Chinese restaurant up the road for free.
Trowel - A lot of the materials I used were items I already had, like my trowel. You can totally use a plastic spoon if you want to.
Bucket - Another item that is not necessary at all. If you want to scoop out of the cement bag with your spoon, more power to you!
