Did you know that you can make your own ceramic trivet to celebrate pineapple day on June 27th. Don’t want to paint your project with pineapples? No problem! You can use this same method to make a ceramic trivet with any design that you choose. This is a part of Craft Lightning this week where we are celebrating all of those obscure holidays throughout the year. You can see more with the project from day 1 here and scroll down to see the projects from day 2. This one was originally posted over on the Darice blog where I am a paid contributor. I am posting it here in case you missed it!
Supplies needed to make a ceramic trivet:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore, however, a small commission will go to this site.
- Ceramic Square Tiles (these unfinished ones are perfect for this project)
- Adhesive Stencils (the pineapple stencil can be found here)
- Craft Paint
- Mod Podge Dishwasher-Safe Formula
- Paint Brushes
- Adhesive Felt Pads
Just peel and stick your self-adhesive stencil onto your tile. Using a stencil that is not self-adhesive? Try a stencil spray adhesive on the back for the best results.
Then just start adding your paint. I used a few different shades of each color to add some interest to the piece.
Remove the stencil once your painting is complete and allow to dry completely. Then go over the top with a few coats of dishwasher-safe Mod Podge. Follow all instructions on the bottle as far as how many coats and timing in between coats. You will also have to cure your DIY trivet for 28 days before actually putting in the dishwasher.
Add felt pads to the bottom of each trivet to protect your counters. Then you can add your ceramic trivet to a gift or use in your own kitchen.
You can hand wash these trivets or they are top rack dishwasher-safe.
I made this version to celebrate national pineapple day but you can mix and match stencils for any occasion and use this same technique.
This is a really great project for any bridal shower you may have coming up as well.
