A Fabulous Idea Using Concrete and Bottle Caps

$10
15 Minutes
Easy

I've never worked with concrete before, so when it was chosen for a challenge I do with 11 other bloggers in this month's Home Depot Gift Challenge, I was majorly intimidated. I've always loved the look of it but figured I needed to start with baby steps my first time. Our challenge was to make something for a father (since it is Father's Day) so I decided to make a large trivet for my father-in-law for his seafood-frying and shrimp-boiling!

The supplies are super simple and cost well under $10! Ignore the lacquer, that totally didn't work (you can read about it in the post here).

Carefully arrange your caps in whatever pattern you'd like on the top. I chose to make a Texas flag on mine using some of our beloved Texas beer :)

    I take it the bucket is slick enough the concrete didn't stick to it? That's my only worry, I would love to make several stones and this looks like a really nice way to do it.

      When I make concrete bricks or stepping stones I " grease" the molds with spray-on cooking oil ( like Pam). It works great!
