Ideas for a Trivet

I am looking for ideas for a trivet. We are having a summer camp and want to use stamps. I was thinking of something like a tile.

You can glue 4 of them together to make a large trivet or just use 1 and put decals on them or stamp on them.Another really cute idea we did in our first grade class was to take 1 tile,put your design on it,and on the back take half of a wooden clothespin,the piece with the spring attached, and glue sideways across the bottom to make a stand.Then take another whole clothespin and glue in the middle straight up to hold a recipe or note cards.Makes a beautiful craft project!!!!!

You could use felt. cut 2 of the same shape, glue together with Elmer's glue, and decorate with stamped on designs. Both sides could be the same color, or 2 different ones.These could be cut out with craft scissors that make fancy edges, and fabric markers/sharpies,fabric paint could be used to decorate them.

These could also be sewn together with batting between the layers, then decorated.

You could use felt to make a hot pad/trivet.

Cut 2 pieces and glue together. You could use the same color, or 2 different ones, and cut them out with the craft scissors which make fancy edges. These could be decorated using stamps, fabric paint, markers, sharpies. They also could be sewn together. Felt is frequently available in the sale fabric section of JoAnn's Fabrics, and Elmer"s glue will hold felt together. Could be done fairly inexpensively.

If you have funds, you can buy discontinued ceramic tile from stores like home depot or lowesor local flooring stores at low prices. Stamp your design on with acrylic for glass, let dry and then add marbles at each corner for feet and you have a trivet/hot plate. Great gift for Mother's day, too!
