DIY Cement Bowls.

5 Materials
20 Minutes

So the new trend is cement bowls so why not try this.

Everyone look at cement with fear 🤣 don’t fear just add water and make beautiful things. From stepping stones to candle bowls.

this wa my first teu but will most definitely try something different tomorrow when the weather inat so bad on here.

What do you need?

Old nesting bowls

cement. (I used mortar because it’s diner. It it takes a lifetime to dry.)

a bucket for the mixture

vegetable oil


rocks for weight

The process

before you start mixing cement ,make sure to oil your bowls. You will need to oil the sides that will be I contact with the cement.

Mix the cement. I am no cement expert so i mixed enough water to look like a heavy cake dough lol.

pour into the bowls. Not too much about 4 fingers high. Yep that’s a measurement. 🤣

now take a smaller bowl and push it down until you see the mixture coming up on the sides. Now place some rocks Inside the smaller bowl to hold that shape.

This is what it should look like after all the steps above have been done.

Ok I tried this but it is not suggested. I wanted color but it did not come out like I expected so I Will try cement dye next time.


Ok so the colored one was a disaster but this one made me smile. I will be creating other items for sure. Loved the idea hated the drying time. 🤣 I like projects that are done fast lol. Go try this. I will try making candles and pouring here. Will do some plant stand stools. Can’t wait to use the other 55lbs of cement i Bought
