Concrete crafts might not come to everyone’s mind when you think about a DIY project, yet the versatility of this underrated material cannot be contested. It can take a variety of shapes and can depict the most creative ideas, whilst preserving its own unique texture that entraps water.

But what is “concrete“? The term represents a mixture of aggregates with a cement activated with the addition of water, producing heat during its chemical reaction before hardening.
