DIY Stenciled Trivet

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #PaintYourWay

We finally finished moving!!  I’m so happy to be in our new home!  There are so many big changes happening here so you will definitely want to stay tuned.  First, I am starting with the kitchen and dining area.  I really want it to feel like a handmade home so I am trying to add my own personal touches along the way.  I came across some cork trivets at the store the other day and knew I could spruce them up a bit.  I hopped over to Michael’s to see what inspired me.  With the help of the Sharpie Paint Marker, I created this DIY Stenciled Trivet to add a touch of me to my new kitchen and teach you how to make your own!

 This DIY project was so easy!  All you need is some cork trivets, a stencil, and Sharpie Paint Markers.

Begin by adhering your stencil to the cork trivet.

 Slowly start coloring in your stencil with your Sharpie Paint Marker.

I was a little concerned with how this would turn out since the cork is so porous but the Sharpie Paint Markers did great!  They didn’t bleed at all!

 After I removed the stencil, I added some detail with a gold Sharpie Paint Marker.  To seal it, I decoupaged the top of the trivet.  Follow directions on your particular bottle of decoupage.  It will cure within 24 days and then it will be easily wiped clean with a wet cloth.


 Isn’t is adorable?!  I am kinda in love with these markers!  I want to go through the house and start stenciling everything!

  1. Just a question here–how does the ModPodge react to hot pans?

  2. I would not have thought to use a Sharpie paint marker. I hesitate to use stencils because of the lack of control, but this would solve that!!

      Super easy, Cristin! I am horrible with stencils! But if I can do it, so can you! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I would love to try this out. You have mentioned that curing time is 24 days! I am hoping it was a typo and you meant 24 hours. Please let me know so that I can use this to make some gifts for my oncologist and nurses at the chemo place.

    • Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says:

      Nope – 24 days. It is dry within hours but to make it so it can be cleaned, it is 24 days. You can easily make them as gifts though! They will be fine to give. :)
