These are gorgeous and super simple to make! Cut off the top of a water bottle or plastic container, cover it with cooking spray, and pour in the wet cement. You can keep the container level for a simple look, push the cement up the sides for an uneven edge, or tip the container on its side for a slant.

Once the cement is dry, melt wax and pour it in with a candle wick.
