The kids are always looking for pretty gifts they can make for family or friends, and these hand-painted trivets are perfect (and useful) gifts. They are simple to make, and even the littlest artists can have fun with this easy project!! This is such a fun Winter craft for kids!
To make your own snowflake trivets, you will need: a plain cork trivet (ours came from IKEA in a pack of 3), masking tape, paint brush, and acrylic paint. Start by making a simple snowflake with the masking tape, then invite your child over for some painting fun!
Allow the paint to dry completely, then carefully remove the masking tape. Outline with a permanent marker, if desired. The kids could also repeat the same process to the other side of the trivet!
The kids were so proud of how their snowflake trivets turned out, and since they absolutely love to paint, this project was a big hit with them!! We kept one to use in our kitchen, and the other two are great for grandparent gifts!
