We are continuing on with handmade gift week and these stenciled trivets. These are super simple to make and will be great wrapped under the tree for anyone that loves to cook. Grab some trivets and paint plus the stencil of your choice to complete this look. You can choose the stencil and paint color that will go in the kitchen of your gift recipient.
Items needed to make this handmade gift:
- Cork trivets (This 3 pack is super affordable!)
- Paint in your choice of colors (I used the Americana Chalky Finish in Refreshing)
- Stencil (I used this mixed media stencil)
- Americana Matte Spray Sealer (Perfect to protect your project for the long haul!)
- Stencil brush (I love these for all my stencil projects!)
- Stencil adhesive (TIP: Using this on your stencil projects will give you cleaner lines when stencil is removed)
Apply stencil adhesive to the back of your chosen stencil. Press to surface of trivet. Press all areas firmly. Stencil over the top with the paint of your choice and a pouncer brush. Be sure to use as little paint as possible to minimize the chance that the paint will seep under the stencil.
Peel away stencil as soon as you are done painting. Allow paint to dry and cure completely according to package directions. Then spray with a few coats of sealer. Allow to dry.
This handmade gift is ready for gift giving! Grab some paint and stencils and make these stenciled trivets for everyone on your gift giving list.
