Five Concrete DIY Project Ideas

Concrete is a lot of fun when you get to know it! Over at the CPS blog we repair concrete to fix the foundations of homes, and when we’re not on the clock, we’re using it for play too!

Seriously, it’s not just for driveways! There a lot of ways to use concrete to make fun, modern artworks and useful tools for your everyday life. We’ve hand picked a few of our do-it-yourself favorites. Thanks to our friends over at homedit.com for putting this big list of 34 ideas together.

Check out this concrete wall hook made using the base of a lightbulb and molded concrete. With a concrete screw, this would even work well in the basement of some homes.

Want to make something special for someone special this holiday season? These concrete votives make the perfect gift. They’re really easy to make too with just a few household supplies – just remember that you have to wait for the concrete to dry before you wrap it, not for last minute gift givers!

Get rid of the those old ice trays and cookie cutters that you’re sick of anyway and create something really special – concrete fridge magnets! Seriously, all you have to do to make these is find a mold, fill it with some concrete mix, push the magnet gently into the back and wait for it to dry. Cool shapes, new look for the fridge and the feeling of accomplishing arts and crafts! It doesn’t get much better than these!

    This is really cool! My husband repaired a crack in the foundation a few months back, and now we have leftover cement we’d like to use. I’ll be giving some of these projects a try, thank you!
