Ornament Swap 2014: DIY Hand Painted Concrete Gems

One of my favorite December & holiday traditions has come and gone already; the annual ornament swap! I think what makes it so fun is coming up with new ideas and trying out new materials that might not be traditionally thought of for holiday ornament crafts. Quick setting concrete, or Quikcrete, was my experiment this year and I love how these little gems turned out. 

To see some of the ornaments I received in the swap check out my Instagram feed and if you're curious about my projects from previous years, you can click here to look back. Sorry if any past post images are appearing a bit fuzzy, I've been changing around the design of the blog over the years and smaller images are being scaled up and becoming a bit pixelated as a result.

Below are a few of the in-progress photos and tips for making your own.
