Concrete ring cones & jewelry holders | How to


Ohhhh!!! Hey guys we’re Evan and Katelyn, and today
we’re gonna be making some cone shaped concrete ring holders. And bowl shaped. And bowl shaped! Yeah! They’re actually presents for some of our
family members, so if you’re family, stop watching. If you’re not – come along. Come along. To make the mold for the cone shaped ring
holders, you’re gonna need a template, transparencies, tape, and scissors. And for the bowl shaped ring holders, you’ll
need 2 different sized clear plastic ornaments that come in 2 halves like this. And also for this project we’re gonna need
concrete. And a little bucket to mix in. We’re gonna make the cone shaped ones first
and we started with these simple templates. It’s 3 different sizes so we’re just gonna
cut those out. We’re gonna put these down here and trace
them. Can’t we just put it under and then draw? Oh! I like your smarts and brains. You didn’t just marry me for my devilishly
handsome looks? You didn’t marry me for my wonderful tracing
skills because you’re gonna be severely disappointed. It’s so wonderful! First step is to apply some tape at the end
like that. And the next step is you wanna add a little
crease right there, right in the middle. Line it up and pinch it right there. Now that you have your crease you’re gonna
use that as a guide to pull this into a rounded cone. Once the first piece of tape is applied, apply
the rest down the seam. Aw that’s a good one! It is a good one. There’s like kinda like a bulging seam. That sounds wrong. We’ll deal with the seam. I think it’s ok. It might just look kinda cool having a seam. Totally. Alright concrete time. We need to figure out how we’re gonna hold
these while the concrete’s in them. Hahaha! What do we have around here. We could cut holes into something. Cardboard or like a paper plate. Oooo paper plate. Yeah. We only have plastic plates. We could use cardboard. Yeah. Yeah! That’s perfect. I know that this is excessive, but since we
have it… We have a hole saw so that’s what we’re gonna
use. You could draw circles and cut them out. Perfect! We’ll have to be kinda careful with the big
ones so they’re not top heavy. As long as we’re not like stomping around. That’s always how I like to walk around though. Ahhh! So over powered. Yet perfect. Shall we mask up? Hehehe. Katelyn would you pass the uh- We should probably
tell people a little bit about concrete if they haven’t watched any of our other concrete
videos. Let’s tell the people about concrete. You wanna tell the people about concrete? You probably should follow the ratios on your
bag, we just don’t have our bag anymore so we’re eyeballing it. A little bit of water goes a long way. The consistency should end up being like sandy
pancake batter. So this is the right consistency right there. Kinda like chunky oatmeal. So now we’re gonna spoon the concrete into
our little cones. So satisfying. So the reason we have that inner line on our
template is because that’s what we’re going to fill up our concrete to. Except for Evan, who’s already gone past it. Should we just get the orbital sander and
vibrate this whole thing? Where is the orbital sander? I dunno… Haha. Whoa! Hahaha. Ok, so we have two different sized clear ornaments. We’re gonna scoop the concrete into here and
then push this one inside. We’re gonna get some pieces of wood. Use the weight to hold it in place. I’m not sure how much vibrating we should
do. I don’t see any air bubbles in there. Because we filled it and then pushed it down. This was so easy. It is time. Do we wanna start with this. Or this. Well that one just had a chunk fall off so
let’s start with these guys. Man I suck at this. I got this one started for you. Haha no! Oh it just slides the rest of the way out. It’s so smooth! Man it’s so shiny and nice! Can we keep some for us? No hahaha. You’re beating me. I mean, it’s not a race. Unless I win. It’s a race! Hahaha. These tops are not good, they are so not flat. I’m gonna put my safety glasses on for this. I’m just getting plastic shards. I have an idea. This was so easy. Riveting! It is helping. Ohh yeah that’s a good chunk. Oh yeah yeah yeah. Are we making some progress? Oh yeah! Yay! It does look nice, but that took a long time. Like 5 minutes. So the outside now? Oh man. Ok, wait. Ohhhh!!! That was wonderful! Look at that it’s so smooth! Oh my gosh. That’s really pretty! It’s so polished and nice. It doesn’t feel like cement at all it feels
like plastic. It’s crazy. So cool. Ooo! One thing we do need to fix about this though
is the top. Here’s I’m gonna get a, I’m gonna get a close
up. That’s, that’s not great. It’s, it’s pretty bad. Hahaha. Alrighty so, we got this 60 grit sandpaper
to really knock some of it off. Progress? Progress! Haha. So lesson learned. Level your concrete. It’s not worth all the sanding. It wouldn’t have been that much work to just
level it from the get go. We’re gonna add a little bit of embellishment
with brass gilding paint. While we paint we wanted to tell you that
this video was brought to you by our awesome Patreon supporters. We recently passed a milestone over at Patreon
where we are no longer operating at a loss! So thank you guys for all of your support,
big and small, it means a lot to us and it helps us make these videos without losing
money, so we really appreciate it. Thank you. Now you guys know the secret to all of our
pretty shots. We just have this little piece of marble that
we just crop really really creatively. So at first we were thinking these little
cones were harder because it took a small amount of time to actually cut out and form
the molds. Turns out these guys were more difficult because
you, we had to use the heat gun to remove the mold and then there was a lot of sanding
involved. We probably could have made it easier on ourselves,
but- But a lot of lessons learned. We really like how these guys turned out and
we might turn them into products soon so they might show up on our Etsy page, they might
not, But if we were to do these again, we would probably make a whole bunch of silicone
molds and um make them easier to make. Yeah hey so if you guys would like them, let
us know because if you do, we’ll make the molds and we’ll put them on our Etsy. Well hope you guys enjoyed this episode and
look forward to seeing you in the next one. Mmm, time to record the after show. Oh yeah! And if you don’t know what that is check out
patreon dot come slash Evan and Katelyn. Bye! Bye! Hey guys we’re Evan and – HEY GUYS! Hey guys! Hey guys! We’re gonna be making some ring shaped concrete
ring holders. Some ring shaped ring holders! They’re not ring shaped! Serious. I’m so serious right now. I’m so dang serious. My face isn’t in it right? No. Cause I got chins galore. Chins galore, it’s like a really crappy bond
name. Haha. Ahh! Things! Stuff!

  1. Just from the thumbnail i can already tell it looks AMAZING!
    Love from Switzerland <3

  2. Those look so great I'll make some tomorrow for my mom!

  3. Pro Tip: publish video, make unlisted and wait till finished processing. When finished set it to public.

  4. Do you know the secret to make concrete super strong? Water it a few times after it has hardened. Could be useful for the tips of the cones…

  5. Oh my god how did you know I just got a 50 lb bag of concrete?!! I've been making coasters non-stop but I was just thinking "what else can I make?!?!" Should have known you'd come to the rescue! <3

  6. That looks so great. Still using the vinyl concrete patcher just like the letters?

  7. The sound is awful !!!

  8. Great funny guide! Best regards MrHandwerk

  9. I thought that the only place to put rings were fingers

  10. Ohhhhh…molds in the shop would be AWESOME! That way you don't have to make the concrete, but you can help us!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. So simple but so cool! Do the bowls roll around though?

  12. good job on that stop motion!
    (and of course, this is an excellent project overall!)
    Edit: btw, how did you get the base of the cones flat and smooth? kinda seems like you would get sort of…."rocks" in there

  13. Love the editing on this!! <3

  14. โ€œErrand boy & Katelynโ€!!! I fricken love this edit. Crazy good!

  15. Y'all so crafty. Great vid as always!

  16. Ha ha! "except for Evan, who's already gone past the line". You guys are a joy to watch! Cool project once again!

  17. BUT I WANNA BE FAMILYYYYYYYYY. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ I love you guys.

  18. How does Katelyn's hair look fantastic in every video? tell me your secrets!

  19. My new mantra – "It's not a race unless I win".

  20. Hy guys
    How are you?
    You are very funny hahaha Itยดs so easy hahahah for me no.
    Beautiful job I liked so much
    Congratulations

  21. Absolutely loved this one! I really want to try some concrete projects so seeing you do this really helped! – I have two questions however:
    1) what ratio of sand/ cement did you use?
    2) have you ever thought of doing something similar but using plaster of paris? I feel like it would look amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

    EDIT: Couldn't you hot glue or bond on a dowel/plastic tube to the inner sphere so you could remove it really easily by just pulling?

  22. This turned out really nice!

  23. I love these new designs…. I love how you show the whole process and don't cut out any of your errors and tell us all the ways that it could be improved <3 I love to see everyone of your videos <3

  24. you guys should try 3d modeling and printing rings, its really fun!

  25. you guys are literally one of my favorite youtubers, i can't wait until your channel takes off!

  26. Iโ€™ve been looking for a perfectly sized clear ball ornament but, alas I still havenโ€™t found one. Instead of Christmas decorations I need to make a Pokรฉball!!!! Iโ€™m trying to make it out of fiberglass but itโ€™s just too mich sanding and bondoing and repeating.๐Ÿ˜ข

  27. So cool! Really liked the stop motion shots!

  28. I came over after seeing you guys on April's channel and am very glad I did — I had a smile on my face the entire video. Very nicely done!

  29. Awesome job E&k!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š …… Perhaps for future prototyping you could try cooking spray as a release agent, it would probably be best to use as little as possible, so I guess spray and then wipe. Let me know what you think, or if you tried this already.

  30. What if I get impaled?

  31. You 2 are always great together.

  32. That was fun! I love the way you shot this one, with the finished shots mixed in all over the place. I would not have guessed that the bowls would turn out to be harder. Twist ending!

  33. Love the video as always! "Chins Galore is like a really crappy Bond name." You slay me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  34. i've seen some diy concrete projects where they recommend using clear coats or other spray releases on the molds (the plastic domes in this case) and that should prevent the concrete from adhering to the molds and it should just pop right out! kinda the same idea as adding cooking spray to the muffin pan before adding in the batter! Not sure what works best for your molds but maybe its worth researching?

  35. I am really enjoy this ,both are you husband wife ?

  36. Which of the projects you did do you guys still use??

  37. Katelyn's face right before the bowl slid out of the mold hahahahahahahaha

    Great stuff as usual guys.

  38. Not so easy now huh? Jk jk

  39. Will you guys ever try to make a ring for each other? Like out of metal?

  40. Filming while hungry? Katelyn and her food analogies were great.

  41. Random morning find led to becoming a new subscriber before the video finished. Happy holidays๐ŸŽ„

  42. You guys crack me up, I love it!

  43. I LOVE the frank howarth style animation

  44. Such a cool idea! I've got half a bag of cement in the shed so might give this a go. Have you thought of using a cement dye to colour the concrete or maybe adding something like glitter to add a sparkle? I also recall a technique with oil paint floating on water and dipping objects in to it to add a marble effect. That might be interesting for the outside of the hemisphere. Thanks guys.

  45. Awesome video guys! Loved it!

  46. with those ornament plastic things (i guess) you should totally make a moon looking thing with it ๐Ÿ˜›

  47. "This is so easy." Me starting every one of my projects. Love you guys!

  48. So shiny! Like a diamond in the rough

  49. Chins Galore was my wrestling name when I was pro.

  50. Woah this looks so good!! The whole video I was wondering what it would look like if you painted it 0v0

  51. I've seen so many cool things with cement lately. Im gonna have to give it ago.. Some many ideas and not enough time to do them

  52. once again the projects look great. thanks for sharing. some of my concrete mushrooms did the same thing. one little trick i found to flatten them out was I just took them out to the driveway and slide them around in the cement and then it sanded them flat. the drive way was acting like a sanding stone. worked good lol. try it out let me know how it works.

  53. Iโ€™d love to see these for sale.

  54. Wonderful!! Look great and winter esque.

  55. 4:40 yeah pallet wood! ๐Ÿ˜

  56. Oh I forgot to send a Paul & I mold… ๐Ÿ™ oh well! Great project anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  57. Love the stop motion!! ITS SO WONDERFULLLLLLLLLL!

  58. This is a cool one. I may have to do a variant on this at some point.

    Quick question/suggestion for your videos — are your final videos in 30 fps or 60 fps? I ask because I originally was doing mine at 30 fps, but switched to 24 fps, and like this much better. I read a few articles on getting a "cinematic" look, and all of them recommended 24 fps. It was totally counterintuitive to me that lower fps might look better…but I think it does. You guys have awesome production in general, so this is something VERY minor, but to my eye it looks like you might be using a higher (e.g., 30) fps, so I figured I'd throw this little nugget out just in case it is useful.

    p.s. Happy New Year! Here's to more awesomeness in 2018….

  59. 10/10 would stab myself with the ring holders

  60. The cone is really cool but it'd be nice if you could do one shaped like a unicorn horn since unicorns are weirdly in trend now and teens would go nuts about it i think

  61. 'It might look kinda cool having the seam'
    Man I can relate to that. When you are making something and convince yourself that 'ehhh it's MEANT to look like that'

  62. Hi could you not spray a layer of oil on moulds before putting con rete in them to help them release.
    Cheers
    Tim from wood 4 nothing

  63. You can use cooking oil in the moulds so they come out easier

  64. hey recently got to your channel an i love your videos :))) do you do them for a living or do you have a different job?

  65. You guys are soooooo! Dorky

  66. There is a product that those of us who work in fiberglass use called โ€˜releaseโ€™…
    It will dramatically change how you work with concrete molds.
    Seriously.
    Great vid!
    Great project!
    You guys are so fun to watch!

  67. I've made similar items, like votive holders/tealights with bowls instead of ornaments. I used a regular metal kitchen mixing bowl and prepped it first with cooking oil to act as a release agent. It popped right out when it dried! Maybe u can put some of the cooking oil on your items first, then u wouldn't have to use the heat gun or ur brute strength. You can use any oily substance as a release agent – petroleum jelly, any oils or anything made out of oil or petroleum jelly…like Vicks, lol! That would be smelly tho ๐Ÿ˜‰ Tfs! I wanna try the ring holders!!!

  68. I've done some of this in the past using the cement that is used for oil wells, it goes really shiney. The guys I was working with at the time brought all kinds of plastic packaging in for molds and it was Easter time so we made a lot of rabbits and chicks one of the guys stuck two halves of an egg together and it moulded perfectly apart from a tiny seam, so tactile!! Happy happy, thankyou guys.

  69. Make geodes out of the bowls

  70. You two are fun, funny… โ™ฅ it

  71. I feel like family!

  72. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  73. One day you slip and fallin the restroom and get impaled by the ring holders

  74. You should make a gold drip embellishments on the cones!

  75. Hi i am watching your videos. And i love how perfect you are. But i have a quastion for you
    What type of colors i should use to color the concrete after molding it?? Because i used acrylic colors but it looks like keeps a transparent on concrete so you can still see the concrete silver color why ? What should i use instead of them or before them to not let the concrete absorbing the color..
    Please help me im a bigenner

  76. iโ€™ve never made one of your diy projects, but i find myself often binging your videos because of your banter and joking.
    love yโ€™all

  77. I know this was ages ago but for people watching later it would maybe be easier to remove the middle "bowl" if you used super glue or epoxy to stick a handle, Ring, block or something to the inside of it so you have something to help rotate or rock as this would give you leverage plus if it's lined up you can use it for pressing it into you concrete with the weights. Anyway only my 2 pence worth.

  78. Before fancy pansy concrete Jewelry cones and bowls existed….
    In every woman's…. men's drawers… the scraping of the chains, rings… being tangled up like earphone wires…. You feel as your energy is being sapped from undoing the nots and tangles… You get sick of it… then when you are in a rush that you can't even wear the jewelry to go with your outfit…
    BUT FEAR NOT! Why? You just need to watch and follow the steps. Paw approved by Supurrvisor

  79. I want someone to make a video of all yalls cute couple moments

  80. I really hope you both are the same people off camera and that you both love each other. Cause I love you both, youโ€™re both beautiful people

  81. The timing on the captions is off… oof itโ€™s disorienting

  82. The ring holders seem dangerous…but good job guys!

  83. There is a quickrete ad lol

  84. Did y'all know we have 4 channels now? This main one, plus:

    ๐ŸŽฎ Evan and Katelyn Gaming youtube.com/evanandkatelyngaming

    (us playing games and chatting, enhanced by epic editing and a heavy dose of memes)

    ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Evan and Katelyn Podcast youtube.com/evanandkatelynpodcast

    (chatting about life, YouTube stuff, and playing games you can play along with)

    ๐Ÿ˜น Evan and Katelyn Too youtube.com/evanandkatelyn2

    (still figuring this one out ๐Ÿ˜‚)

  85. or just have more rolls of tape

  86. Step 1 – cut out template to trace around onto clear sheets
    Step 2 slip under clear plastic sheet & trace.

    Am I the only one to notice cutting flush to the pattern could have been skipped?

  87. When u said concrete I thought u said coffee so its coffee time

  88. Background musin reminds me of despicable me

  89. …..all i can see is sharp pointy objects i'd be scared to have those around the house all it takes is one slip

  90. if i was to do this with the ring holders id have two sets of cement and have random lines on them

  91. Great idea! I love both projects!!

  92. You should have painted them to look like unicorn horns!!

  93. I found your Etsy account and i'd followed you and favorited your shop immediately! I have an Etsy account and shop too! ๐Ÿ˜

  94. I feel like the ring holders would have been a lot more appealing if you would have painted like an inch of the base with gold too!

  95. I know I am watching these videos out of sequence but in one of the videos I know I saw a cricut maker is this before she bought the machine I can't imagine her fussy cutting when she has an electronic cutting machine
