How to Make a Ceramic Tile Trivet

I had some tile left over from a recent project, so I decided to make a trivet out of it. Here’s what I did:

  1. Spray a piece of wax paper with a light coating of cooking oil spray.
  2. Lay two paint stir sticks on the wax paper. Position them closely together so the tile’s corners will hang off the edge.
  3. To make the feet for the trivet, put a dab of hot glue in each corner of the tile.
  4. Immediately set the tile on the wood sticks and press down. The sticks serve as spacers to ensure each glue pad is exactly the same thickness.
  5. Once the glue hardens, peel off the wax paper.
