These DIY cement votives are both industrial and feminine. From Claire of Fellow Fellow and featured on the Say Yes blog, the DIY project for lace-embellished candles work any time of the year, whether you're enjoying long summer nights outside or are looking for homemade gifts to give this holiday season.
The DIY cement votives require materials like powdered cement, a disposable container, coins and lacy sticker tape or doily stickers. For further customization, you can press just about any design, shape or texture into the wet cement rather than using lace.
The instructions are for a candle holder, rather than the candle itself. The decorative accessory will hold a tea light-sized candle, making it perfect for adding ambiance. You can make a unique set as well.
