How to Make a Cork Trivet

A wine cork trivet makes a pretty addition to your table. Here's how to make one.

To create a colorful trivet, slice wine corks into half-inch pieces then hot glue the pieces together starting at the center and working outward. Place the best side of each cork piece facing up. Continue gluing cork pieces together in a circle until the trivet measures 8 inches or your desired size. Paint cork tops with craft paint in a variety of colors for a bright and functional tabletop accessory.
