1. Cement Magnets Tutorial
Aileen from At Home in Love made us these nifty little concrete magnets. Here’s how.
Materials: a silicone ice cube tray, magnets, concrete mix, a bucket or container to mix the concrete in, a stick for stirring, and a cup to scoop the concrete with.
1. Mix the concrete according to the directions on the package. Start by putting a couple inches of water in the bottom of my bucket, then pour in the concrete mix until it reached the consistency of pancake batter (or a little thicker).
2. Scoop the concrete out and fill each compartment of the silicone mold about half full (or however thick you want your finished magnets to be). If they’re not quite even, you can adjust the levels with a spoon.
3. Pick up the mold and set it down again a couple times to make sure the concrete has reached every corner.
4. When the concrete has just started to set but is still pliable, push in the magnets, leaving just the very top of them poking out.
5. Wait for the concrete to fully set, following the directions on the package. Or if you’re impatient, wait at least 8 hours.
6. Pop the hardened magnets out of the silicone mold. They should come out really easily.
7. You can sand the bottom edges to smooth them out a little if you’d like.
And that’s it! Stick them on your fridge and admire your handiwork.
