Tile trivets

Assalm alykom:
Here is yet another tile project. When we moved into our present house, there where many left over tiles from remodeling that was done from the previous owners. Therefore, I am always looking for craft ideas to utilize what I have. This one can be a project for the child of any age.


Tile of preferred size

Paint brushes

Glass paints that require baking in the oven


Just make sure the tile is clean before painting. Make sure that the glass paints you use requires baking. This assures durability. I have put our trivets into the dishwasher many times and the paint is still there. If your child is young, give them examples and ideas to paint the trivet. Otherwise, this is going to be a 2 minute project. Once your done painting and baking, use everyday on your dining room table. The ones I have are a permanent fixture on my table.
Here are some that we made: You can see with the last one made by my then three year old, that the trivets can be according to the age. For the smaller tiles, if you put a piece of felt on the bottom, they make great coasters. I hope you enjoy making these as much as we did!

Hello to the anonymous person who posted the verse from the Bible. Muslims very much believe in Jesus. We believe that he is also the Mesiah and that he will return on Earth. We just do not believe him as God or the son of God. He was a prophet of God.
Ye are my witnesses , saith the Lord,and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he, before me there was no god formed, neither shall there be after me.
I, even I,am the Lord, and beside me there is no saviour.
Isaiah 43:11-12
