Creative concrete decoration as far as the eye can see
No matter whether you are window shopping, leafing through various living and furnishing magazines or surfing the Internet. Concrete decoration is currently very trendy and can be found in all forms and functions. With creative concrete, all imaginable things can be poured into shape. If you want to get even closer to the material and experiment with it, kneaded concrete is ideal for this, which can be kneaded like modeling clay and has even more design potential.
Our concrete lamp – the concrete doesn’t always have to be cold
Concrete is quickly underestimated as a material. In the past it was only considered a cold building material, today it is an absolute highlight in your own home in combination with color accents or light. No matter whether exposed walls made of concrete make the living room look modern or the home is decorated with small concrete decorative elements, in combination with the right living accessories and a bit of color, concrete decoration now finds its place everywhere, as does our concrete lamp.
The idea of pouring a concrete lamp into shape sounds totally exciting, especially when you can also see how easy it is to make this concrete lamp yourself. Here, too, the two of them stayed true to their upcycling ideas and, in addition to the creative concrete, kept empty jam jars in front of the waste glass container and cleverly built them into their DIY concrete lamps. It doesn’t actually take much to build this concrete lamp yourself. In addition to the aforementioned waste glass and creative concrete, you need a round bowl and lamp accessories or an LED light chain. To do this, stick the jam jar with the lid pointing downwards in the bowl with a little hot glue, stir the creative concrete according to the manufacturer’s instructions, also put it in the bowl and let the concrete mass dry overnight.
Step two can already follow the next day. To do this, remove the first part of your lamp from the bowl and fill the bowl again with the creative concrete. Finally, position the finished lamp part in the middle of the freshly mixed concrete mass and use small pieces of wood as spacers. Here, too, the entire concrete lamp can be removed from the bowl on the following day. Let the concrete lamp dry out for a few days. Finally you cut a hole in the lid of the jar and let in the lamp holder or light chain. complete.
