Stained Glass Mosaic Trivet

2-5 Days
Easy

A simple inexpensive candle holder makes a great base for a stained glass mosaic trivet. It has a raised lip to hold grout and define the edge of a project. You can use glass or other materials for the mosaic, and make it as simple or as complicated as you want. Once sealed, it is perfect to use as a trivet, plant holder, or just for display!
The base for the mosaic trivet. Inexpensive, and comes in a variety of sizes.
A variety of colors and patterns of glass, plus small mother of pearl cabochons make up this kitchen trivet.
The clear back makes it beautiful as a display piece or for practical use.
I have a friend that makes jewelry who gives me beads that she can't use (crooked holes, chipped, etc). They are great for mosaics. Here is an example with turquoise beads in the center of this trivet.
