Place the doormat in the bottom of the bin. You can get this type of doormat from your local hardware store. •Cut the chicken wire to the appropriate size, for reinforcement. •Mix the concrete as described. •Pour concrete into the bin so that it completely covers the doormat. The height and thickness should each be about 2 inches (5 cm). •Press the chicken wire into the concrete and smooth the surface. •Gently tap the mold a few times to remove any air bubbles. •Allow the slab to cure and dry for at least twenty-four hours.
If you’d like to make a pattern embedded in the concrete (when making a bowl or something similar), simply line the bottom of the mold with a crocheted fabric. Ceiling roses can also add nice patterns to trays or medallions; there’s more on this later in the book. Painting on concrete also works really well and creates a really pretty effect. “We love crocheted potholders in lovely colors and beautiful patterns. These cost almost nothing at the flea market. Even in concrete casting they’re incredibly useful.
Mix the concrete as described. •Pour the concrete into the mold, but don’t fill it completely. You’ll need to leave space for the tealights. •Press the desired number of tealights into the wet concrete. •Gently tap the mold against the ground a few times to remove any air bubbles. •Let the candleholders cure and dry for at least twenty-four hours. Don’t place them in direct sunlight. •For best results, spray the concrete with water a few times during the drying period. •Carefully remove the tealights from the plastic mold.
