Custom Cork Trivets!

Standard

Do you remember my IKEA cork coasters that got a new look 😉

Well, this time it is cork trivets.

After my first wood burning project – Name plate, I started looking for more and thought  why not use the tool to give few trivets a little personality. Plain looking is not bad but adding a little character would be more fun!

And here are the custom cork trivets!

Gather the material – trivets, wood burning tool, sharpie markers and some patterns.

Step 1 : Draw a pattern of your choice on to the trivet. The marker you use to draw design does create a colored border. If you are using a printout, trace it on using a carbon or transfer paper.

Step 2: Preheat the tool and burn through the design on the cork.

Isn’t that cool, they are very handy in my kitchen and also look cute on table while the food is still cooking 🙂

What’s next to burn…….?? 😛

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
