This post is a little late... but for those looking ahead to other gift giving occasions, here is a great idea that Tyler and I did for a couple Christmas presents-- kid art trivets! It was actually a special request from my mom, so I searched for a "how-to" and found a tutorial on Prudent Baby. Though some people seemed to have mixed results with the trivet sticking to their pan-- we didn't; I made sure to try it out before-hand ; ) Then again, I did spray them pretty darn well with Polyurethane Spray! I drowned them, actually!
Trivets would make perfect gifts-- thinking Mother's Day (oh, it's only 4 mos. away!) or a special keepsake for your home! Hand made gifts are so special and unique!
So here's what you'll need:
mod podge and brush
Here's how I did it:
I cut Tyler's artwork to fit the trivet and applied mod podge to make it stick (I didn't smooth it out very well, so the artwork showed a lot of "character"); after that dried I took it outside and sprayed it with Polyurethane. After it dried completely, I used a glue gun to apply felt underneath. That's all!
