Tile Samples to Pretty Trivets

by Jeanie
For this months Lowes DIY Days challenge, I took three 46 cent tile samples from Lowe's and made them into pretty trivets. For that price you can have decorated trivets for every holiday!
It all starts with 6 x 6" tile samples from Lowe's. I chose the all white ones.
I used my electronic cutter (Silhouette Cameo) to make vinyl shapes to decorate my tiles.
If you don't have a Silhouette machine, you could also use permanent markers,
or paint made for painting on glass or ceramic.
To finish, spray with an acrylic sealer,
and adhere felt or cork discs to the bottom to prevent scratching your surfaces.
For 46 cents a piece you can decorate them for every ocassion!

    But the materials used can not stand up to hot pots placed on them, isn't that what a trivet is for?

    I am looking for grapevines already on the tiles they line up going from the top tile 3 in a row. I have them over the stove would love to get them over the sink.

    I use the bigger ones for my Chopping board. Cheaper and easier to keep Sanitary then the wood ones. Last for ever. Many colors to chose from. The smaller ones I keep for setting on end tables for glasses.
