Add more love to your table by creating the cutest little heart table favours and bring them to life by planting mini cactus or succulents.
If you’d like to do things differently this Valentine’s Day or on a date night, Builders says you can create your own heart table favours with cement. You just need: cement, sand; water; bucket; latex gloves; mould; mini cacti and succulents. Combine these with enthusiasm to channel your inner DYI-self and you will be a step closer to adding more love to your table.
- Wear latex gloves and mix equal parts of cement and sand in a bucket. Add water in small increments and mix well. Tip: The cement should be the consistency of dough.
- Press a little cement mixture in the bottom of the mould. Place the plant in its container on top of the cement and fill the surrounding space with cement. Be careful of the spines when pressing it into the cement!
- Tap the sides of the mould to remove bubbles in the cement. Leave to dry for at least 48 hours.
- Take the hardened cement shape out of the mould.
You can take it a step further and add colour to your creation!
