Concrete Deco Christmas – choose Christmas tree decorations or ornaments for gifts!
Step 1: Prepare concrete
Mix about 4 cups of concrete with 1 cup of water to get the clay-like consistency you need for this project. Add the water slowly until the clay-like consistency is achieved. It is recommended to mix with your hands.
The mix should look like this:
Then roll out a piece of parchment paper and scrape the mixture from the bucket onto the paper. Lay it on with another piece of parchment paper and roll it flat with a rolling pin. You want the concrete to be about 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick.
Use cookie cutters to cut out your ornaments. Make sure the cutter is pushed through the concrete. Then use a toothpick or wooden spit to punch a hole near the top for a ribbon with the cookie cutter still pressed into the concrete. If you use the cookie cutter on the spot, you can prevent the concrete figure from being damaged.
Let the ornaments dry for a day
Break off the excess concrete the next day so that the fittings remain. Use a piece of sandpaper to smooth the edges and remove excess concrete. Finally, you want to create a glittering edge. Paint the side of your ornaments with a sticky craft glue with a brush. Then apply the glitter.
