16 DIY Concrete Lamp Tutorials

Have you ever wondered how to make a DIY concrete lamp? We have! Concrete lamps are the perfect fusion of simple modernity and industrial chic - it's hard not to absolutely adore them. And it's no wonder that you can find concrete lighting filling up the aisles in every home decor store you walk into these days.

The drawback is that concrete lamps and light fixtures often come with a hefty pricetag on account of their weight (concrete isn't exactly the cheapest material to transport from point A to point B). The bright side to all of this is that concrete *powder* is significantly lighter and extremely cost effective. Which made us wonder.... Is making a DIY concrete lamp difficult? The short answer is NO. Not if you have an easy to follow DIY tutorial by your side :)

This week we set off to learn everything we could about how to make DIY concrete lamps and light fixtures, and we learned of SO MANY unique ways to use cement with lighting projects. We were so impressed that we decided to shine the light on our fellow DIY-ers out there and share their tips + tutorials for concrete lamp making success.

Keep reading to learn of the top 16 most knowledgable and helpful DIY concrete lighting tutorials that we encountered this week. Each one presents a unique way to make your DIY concrete lamp. Click through to each project to read or watch the full tutorial on how it's made.
