Crafting Concrete

Sharing is caring!

If you have been reading my blog, you already know we are a team (family) of four creatives. We all pitch in to create and assist the other team members on projects. It is a seamless blending of talents and the best place to be on this side of heaven. Crafting concrete was going to be a fun challenge.

DIY Crafting Concrete Ideas

We are all going to Haven Conference (a blogging conference), and some fun contests have been offered to the attendees while we are waiting to attend. So we decided why not try our hands at the Quikrete contest. We had to make something with one bag of concrete and make a video of the casting. I had never used concrete and had no idea if this was a good idea, but the team wanted to do it, so I would need to be a quick study on concrete.

Planters and Water Fountain

Since I love gardening, I wanted to make something for my garden and plants. My projects would be displayed in front of our DIY trellis with solar lanterns.

We all used Quikrete, but each project used a different mixture. I had no idea there were so many kinds of combinations. It was a breeze to create my project using concrete.

I wish I had learned about the ease of using Quikrete years ago. You can see me how to make Planter and water feature video HERE. Please note I was out in the Florida sun during the filming.

Since Sean used concrete for his Eagle Scout project, he was familiar with it, but his form was a masterpiece even before he did his project.

You can watch Sean make this gorgeous planter HERE.

This was a fantastic learning experience for our team, learning how to craft concrete and work on four different projects simultaneously. I highly recommend using Quikrete for crafting since it is easy to work with, and you can make endless functional and gorgeous masterpieces.


Happy Quikrete Crafting,
