DIY: Design Your Own Tea Trivet

I love a nice cup of tea.  I love a cute teapot.  Why not love my trivet as well?  On a recent trip to Ikea, I spotted a three pack of cork trivets for $3.00.  Using some craft paint and stencils I had at home, I made these cute trivets to match the colors in my kitchen.  This was an easy and fun project, and very inexpensive as well.   

- Cork trivets (mine are from Ikea)
- Craft paint and brush
- Stencils (I used Martha Stewart letter stencils from Michaels)
- Painters tape

- Use the painters tape to create stripes and geometric patterns, like the one in the photo above.
- You can also use the tape to keep your letters stencils straight.
- Paint and let dry overnight.
- Top with a hot teapot or pan from the oven!


  1. Oh those are so cute! I love them. I want to make some. Thanks for the easy directions.

  2. This was so easy to do and really, the design options are endless! I'm glad you like them!!

  3. I'm expecting some personalized ones for Christmas!

  4. I am definitely going to make these! They are so cute and simple. I already have the cork trivets and the painter's tape :)

    1. They were fun to make. Send me a photo if you make your own, I'd love to see!! :)
