  • Upgrade your apartment with these easy DIY ideas
    Does your room seems boring to you? Don't worry, we've got it covered! Here are some crazy cool crafts and DIYs that will definitely leave you inspired. Just prepare some cement and polymer clay.
    DIY lamp stand
    If even Ikea lamp stands look boring to you, it is time to create something unique. Take 10-12 old books that you won't read anymore and mix a bowl of cement. Put the books in the cement mixture one by one and then place them one on another randomly to create a column. Let dry. Well done! Now you can put your lamp on this unique handmade lamp stand that makes your room look so cozy :)
    Easy planters
    Do you like plants and flowers in your house? So do we! However, common planters may look boring. Here is a simple DIY idea for you. Take a pair of rubber gloves for cleaning and fill them in with some cement. Put both gloves in a big bowl to create a round shape and let dry. Carefully cut off and remove the gloves. Fill the cement hands with ground ans plant your favorite flowers. By the way, it can be a really nice gift idea for your family and friends.

    Nicely done! If I may, cement does not "dry", rather it "sets" or "hardens". This is important because the water is essential to the hardening process of the cement. A mix of cement that would dry out before it sets, would be fragile. Especially for tiny objects that are not enclosed during the hardening process, they need to be kept in a moist environment. Maybe just place a plastic bag lousily around them. Concrete pillars inside rivers are the hardest because they stay in water for years. They never dry out.

    I hope you read those books already, or maybe they're terrible destroyed books. I hope so because I love to read! Also, I've seen Googleplex amount of candle DIYs and Googleplex amount of plant DIYs. This makes me wonder how much space you have in your house because I can only imagine you have a ritual with all your DIY candles surrounding you. Oh, another thing, under your video you put "Upgrade your apartment with these easy DIY ideas" but now that I think of it, not many apartments have room for these things? Oh well. I have a lot of things to ask so get ready. who will go and buy cement to pour onto your precious toilet paper for no reason whatsoever? I don't know a single soul who would want to wipe themselves with cement. Although, I do know a couple weirdos who would love to have a plumpy gnome staring at them in the backyard with a fox ready to eat it... totally... Also, I noticed there was no movement with the grey coat you hung at 5:23, and it looks like you could've made it with cement. Now THAT is what I wanna figure out how to do. Nevertheless, I love your creativity and style. None of these I would've figured out how to do it on my own. Keep up the good work! Love ya! :D

    These are very cool ideas! Why are people so critical? I tried the hands in gloves for succulent planters, candle holders, and coin holders....they turned out great! You buy concrete at any Home Depot or other home improvement stores, home made gifts are so much better than store bought items. Thank you for the great ideas!

    To be fair it might take 5 minutes to set them up and their CRAFTS not HACKS so it's mainly for the experience and feeling of doing it yourself and creating things. These things aren't suppose to be laying around your house because they're crafts not hacks.
