How To Make DIY Cement Tealight Candle Holder With Your Kid’s Toy
Ahemm..so this time I stole a toy from her Summer Beach Set.
There were many molds in that beach set, like sea horse… fish… turtle… conch… but I found this Starfish mold supercool.
Upon seeing it, my DIY worm squeaked and this tealight holder making idea came to my mind.

Making of this tealight candle holder is very easy. First, Apply some non-sticky oil inside of the starfish mold.
Now, wear a dust mask as you may inhale cement’s particles while mixing it. Mix three-part cement with one- part of the water in a bowl.
Or you can follow the instructions given on the cement pack. Stir it with a spoon till it gets a pancake batter consistency.
When it becomes a perfect batter, don’t keep it for long and pour the mixture into your mold slowly. Fill the mold 3/4 of the way.
Slam the mold slightly to remove the air bubbles and spread the mixture evenly in the cavity.
Put one tealight candle in the middle of the mold and press it firmly, so that tealight can make its space.
Set aside and allow to dry for 24 hours to make it well built. You can remove your mask.
Once dry, take out the tealight candle and pop out your cement tealight holder from the mold carefully. Don’t bang it, as the holder would come out easily.
