Artistic Trivet


Time for a quick project! I was walking around Dollar Tree, looking for something to do and saw some glass trivets; or perhaps small glass cutting boards..? Who knows.

Either way, this is a great way to incorporate some of your own art work in the kitchen and dining room other than just on the walls ;)

What you'll need:

glass trivet/slash cutting board from Dollar Tree
your original art work
Modge Podge
an old paint brush
scissors and a pen
palette knife
hot glue gun

You'll also need a messy living room/slash work space too. lol.

I have a large stack of "creative practice sheets" and picked out this lovely piece for this project. 

Simply trace the shape of the trivet onto the art and cut it with scissors.

I then used a palette knife to remove the little rubber "feet" on the trivet.

Then using the Modge Podge and old brush, decoupage the art, right side up, to the bottom of your trivet to protect the art from heat and food spills, etc. Use several coats. Let dry completely in between each layer.

Once completely dry, use the hot glue gun to reattach the rubber "feet" to the bottom of the trivet.

Now you have a beautiful and totally unique piece of functional art in the kitchen/dining room for hot pans or slicing up carrots. Or place it really anywhere! Use it in the living room as a candle plate. Or in the master bath as an alternative to a soap dish.

I even made a square one ;)
