Creative DIY Concrete Pumpkins
I have been looking forward to trying my hand at a concrete project for a while.
But to make concrete projects, first, you need a mold. I thought concrete pumpkins would be a great way to start off working with concrete.
DIY Concrete Pumpkins
– Fast setting Concrete mix – Faux pumpkins – Paint stick – Glove – Paint of choice – Hot water – Measuring cup and spoon
– Mix Concrete
Mix the concrete mix with hot water per the directions in the bucket.
STEP 2 – Hand-form pumpkin
Slowly form the concrete on top of the faux pumpkin. Make sure the layer is not too thick so you are able to see some of the pumpkin’s ridges on the shape.
Paint in your choice of color and pattern. I did the stripe pattern, a gold-dipped effect, and a paint drip effect.
