DIY Trivet

Hi friends! 

Today I want share with you a quicky project that I completed during Zoe's nap time. 

The other day I baked a cookie cake for hubby and when I pulled my trivet to let the cookie cake cool, I realized how sad it looked. It is a basic rectangle cork trivet that I got several years ago at Ikea, it was old and one of its corners was crumbling. So a little idea popped up in my head. I remembered that a couple months ago I bought a little package of 4 trivets on sale at the craft store. I thought they would come in handy at some point and this was the perfect project for them (am I the only one who buys things -that I don't need- thinking that they might come handy later on???).

I had some felt handy as well and it was the perfect pop of color for the trivet. Here's what I used (white paint and silhouette not pictured)

I started by spray painting my cork using this paint and the proceeded to fuse some Heat n Bond to my felt using the iron. I then cut a pretty flowery shape with my Silhouette using my fabric blade on 10, depth 33, speed 3. I then peeled the paper backing and to be honest with you, those settings didn't work perfectly and I did have to work a bit to get all the bits detached :-( so I suggest doing a test cut first.

I used some tacky glue to attach it to my trivet and after letting it dry I got this

Love it!

I was planning on making a green one as well but then Zoe woke up from her nap and cuddling with her took priority ;-)

This little project couldn't be any easier since my Silhouette did most of the job, and I am very happy with the results. I hope you like it as well!
