Stone Tiles as Stylish Trivets


Photography by: Aaron Dyer

To make, trace a tile onto a piece of 1/8-inch cork (we used inexpensive place mats) with a pencil; cut out with a craft knife. Paint the edge of the cork with bright craft paint. Stick the cork to the tile’s underside with spray adhesive, such as 3M Super 77. Let dry.
