The finished concrete soap holder.If you need a soap holder, make one yourself. Cement and pebbles are great for this. You will spend quite a bit of money and get an original soap holder. Of course, you can just stick the pebbles into the cement, but then the tops of the pebbles are unlikely to be on the same level. I came up with the idea of first laying pebbles in a mold, and then pouring cement. I made this craft project with my friend, but the idea belongs to me. I really like this concrete soap holder.

Total Time: 30 Min + 4-5 Days for drying cement and varnish

Supplies:

  • cement (preferably high strength)
  • sand (fine)
  • water
  • pebbles about 5 cm long
  • primer for cement
  • acrylic varnish
  • crushed shells
  • plastic mold rectangular shape, length 17 cm, width 8-9 cm, height 6-7 cm
  • plastic bag
  • container for making concrete
  • spoon for mixing and pouring concrete

Steps:

  1. Place a plastic bag in the mold for the soap stand.
  2. Lay out the pebbles in one layer so that the top of the pebbles on which the soap will lie is at the bottom of the mold. The pebbles should fill the entire shape and fit tightly.
  3. Rocks set in a container.
     
  4. So that during the use of the soap excess moisture drains, and the soap dries faster, the pebbles should rise above the concrete base of the soap stand. To do this, add some sand between the pebbles in the mold. Sweep the sand onto the pebbles with a brush. A layer of sand should reach the middle of the pebbles.
  5. Rocks in concrete.

  6. Make concrete: mix cement and sand in a ratio of 1 to 1-2, then add a little water and mix the concrete well.
  7. Spray pebbles with water and pour the concrete. Concrete should completely cover the pebbles.
  8. Rocks in concrete.
     
  9. Leave the concrete to harden and dry for several days.
  10. Pull the soap stand out of the mold. Sand the edges and rinse.
