MADE: CONCRETE




How I feel Christmas should be
Dark and minimalist


SUPPLIES: CONCRETE / WATER / CARD-STOCK / WAX PAPER / PLASTIC TRAY / PLASTIC SPOON / FELT / PAINT / PAINT BRUSH 
STEP ONE: MAKE CARD-STOCK PAPER CONES. 
ALSO MAKE A WAX-PAPER CONE FOR THE INSIDE. 
STEP TWO: MIX CONCRETE. SLOWLY ADD WATER TO THE MIX, IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE BROWNIE BATTER. YOU WANT TO SPOON IT IN THE MOLD, NOT POUR IT. I USED EMPTY JARS TO HOLD THE CONES UPRIGHT.
STEP THREE: REMOVE THE TREES FROM THE MOLD. 
MY TREES SET IN ABOUT AN HOUR. 
STEP FOUR: LET THEM DRY OVERNIGHT. PAINT THE BOTTOM PORTION OF THE TREE AND HOT GLUE A FELT SQUARE THE BOTTOM.
I PLAYED AROUND WITH COPPER AND GOLD. I PERSONALLY LIKE THE COPPER BETTER. 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
