Ring dish

A convenient little dish to safely store rings when you do the dishes or mow the lawn. Also useful for keeping earrings or loose change. Or, make a slightly larger one for keys.

Fire columns

Sleeker than tiki torches. Use gel fuel or candles for poolside illumination.

Decorative bowls

Of course, you can’t eat out of these bowls, but the possibilities for their non-food use are endless. Try filling with natural items like flowers, shells, and stones for a creative centerpiece.

Soften the hard-edged industrial look of concrete with paint or gold leaf. Create interesting textures by pressing objects with patterns you like into the concrete while it’s still wet. Remember: anything you use to make these crafts won’t be good for anything else when you’re done, so choose supplies you don’t mind tossing.
