Create a Christmas trivet from an inexpensive tile and a recycled Christmas card or wrapping paper. It can be displayed on an easel when not in use. Makes a great Christmas gift along with an inexpensive easel!

Editor's Note: This project was received too late for Christmas, but we decided to publish it anyway as you could modify it's seasonality by the type of card or wrapping paper you use.

Approximate Time:



  1. Cut out your design so that it is slightly smaller than the tile.
