DIY Easy Concrete Letters



This is a great DIY project for concrete beginners. It uses a mold you buy, so you’ll be making it in no time! Bonus: you get to spell awesome/awkward messages around the house when you’re done.

We were inspired by the awesome concrete work of Ben from HomeMade Modern. If you haven’t seen his work… HOLY CRAP GO CHECK IT OUT RIGHT MEOW! https://www.youtube.com/user/HomeMadeModern

If you end up making these, take a photo and tag us @evanandkatelyn on Instagram because we’d love to see what y’all come up with!

NOTE: Make sure you have your PPE (personal protective equipment on) before you start handling the concrete mix. Portland cement is very basic (opposite of acidic), and has crystalline silica dust (which is really bad for your lungs). If you get cement on your hands and leave it there it can cause minor chemical burns and draws out moisture from your skin. If you do get cement on your hands, no worries. Wash with water, then pour common white vinegar over the area to neutralize any alkalinity, then wash with water again.
