DIY Cement Candle Tutorial


Looking for ultra-modern decor to go with your minimalist style? We’re guessing that this candle with a cement base is probably just what you’re after. It’s the right balance of understated and eye catching. You’ll also love that the materials are simple to find and very affordable, especially if you buy them in bulk.
