Upcycled Cork Trivet Project
I will admit I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time. It's an idea that floats in and out of my thoughts. But I saw that the theme of today's Day of Creativity Challenge was recycle.
Then I got a call that our house is going under contract! Hooray!
Not two minutes later, I looked in my pantry and saw this:
What? How do I have that many corks? I am not going to move all of those in a jar!
Plus, I want to use the jar for sun tea.
I also found this box that used to hold my Amy Butler pattern cards.
I've filed them away and now the box is empty.
One box + 24 enjoyed bottles of wine = an upcycled trivet!
It took me awhile to organize them in just the right way to make them fit. They're all slightly different sizes. Once I found the right combinations of corks, I glued them together. I guess I still have to move my new trivet to our new house, but now I am only moving useful things!
