So many times, I stumble across lists of DIY projects that claim to be the best thing ever and they do look like the best thing ever but the main problem with them is that either you need a ton of materials or simply a lot of effort is required. I mean, it’s not really a big deal but when you’re busy and just need a little bit of downtime to remember how much you love making handmade things for your home, it kinda sucks and the end result doesn’t seem worth all that effort.
Luckily enough, I found the perfect solution. You’re going to love this super popular DIY trend.
Ever tried your hands at making things by using concrete before? It’s so easy to make (contrary to what it looks like), cheap and the end result looks stunning! From impeccable wall planters, frames, to even modern coasters, these DIY concrete project ideas are sure to blow your mind.
1. DIY Round Concrete Hanging Planter

I’m a huge lover of hanging projects and this is quite similar to the wooden hanging planter but honestly, this concrete planter wins! Elegant, unique and modern with a white triangle painted in the middle adds to its awesomeness. A little time consuming but it will definitely upgrade your home decor.
2. Hexagon Coasters

For a modern uptake on coasters, you’ll find yourself making a ton of these! They can also be used to place earrings and necklaces. All it takes is making a hexagon shape mold and pouring the cement into the mold, allow it to sit overnight until it’s perfectly dry. How easy is that!
