Did someone say balloons? This fun and easy project adds a touch of the trendy industrial style to your cottage’s decor. Concrete is a versatile material and though making these holders may seem complex initially, it’s actually quite simple. Here is the quick two-step process!

1. Apply a mix of fast-patch concrete repair to balloons of different sizes. Make sure the consistency is thick rather than runny. Let them dry overnight.

2. Pop and remove the balloons. Snap off and shape your holders, saving the broken pieces. Paint the insides with a metallic acrylic paint (we chose copper).

If fire is a concern, use battery-powered tea lights to illuminate.

Enjoy!
