Want to make a super easy, super quick rustic trivet? Are you Craft-Impaired? Can you apply a sticker? Well then. grab a slate roof shingle, some felt furniture pads and follow me!
These could totally be gift worthy with a little bit of stenciling, but I love the rustic everyday look just the way they are. Plus, you can line them up down the center of your table for big meals, like I dunno, Thanksgiving!
These were so easy, when I saw 12 terra cotta tiles at the reuse store I snagged them to make some more for my friend's craft fair booth. (She asked me to come up with some inexpensive impulse buys.) The were perfect for stenciling. I used pearlescent acrylic in white and pale green/gold. They are great as large coasters or as trivets. (Ohh...shiny!)
So of course, I jujjed up the slate ones a bit too...
