I really enjoy making things, and along with some family members I had a go at making concrete coasters, using Gemma’s Make Your Own Coasters Kit.
The whole process was fun. We started with a cuppa and looking through the pack. We then moved outside to do the concrete mixing, using the face mask provided the pack (you shouldn’t breathe in concrete!). It was all surprisingly straightforward using Gemma’s mix and instructions.
We then cleaned up and had a leisurely lunch, by then the concrete had “cured” sufficiently for us to remove our coasters from their moulds.
The next day some of the group decorated their coasters following suggestions on Gemma’s blog. I thought mine looked beautiful as it was.
I think the Make Your Own Coasters Kit would make an ideal present for anyone who enjoys crafts. Why not treat your mum this Mother’s Day?
