Add a little red and green to your table this holiday season with these festive cork trivets. They are easy to make and would make great hostess gifts for family or friends. I made a few to give as gifts but now I want to keep them for myself!
The secret to this project is FrogTape Textured Surface. It allowed me to make crisp, clean lines on the cork’s textured surface. I’m a little bit of a perfectionist so if my lines were not perfect, I would not have been happy with this project.
But thanks to FrogTape Textured Surface, I have perfect lines!
- Cork trivets – I found mine at Target (2 pack for $3.99)
- Red, white and green paint
- FrogTape® Textured Surface Kit
- Paint brush
- Multi-Purpose Sealer
Step 1: Paint the entire trivest white.
Step 2: Once the paint is dry, apply strips of FrogTape® to trivet. I covered the entire surface and then peeled of every other strip. Wrap remaining tape around to the back of trivet and press tape along all edges.
Step 3: Firmly run a damp cloth along the edges to activate the PaintBlock® and ensure a good seal.
Step 4: Apply the edge sealer to edges of tape and let it dry for 15 minutes.
Step 5: Paint over the white with red paint. Let dry. Then remove tape.
Step 6: Create small green stripes by taping over the white stripes, leaving 1/4 inch of the white showing in the center. Repeat steps 2-5 and paint green.
Step 7: Apply a top coat of sealer to seal the paint and make more durable.
That’s it! How fabulous do these holiday trivets look?
Use them as heat trivets or use them as cork boards on the wall.
