Handmade Gifts Kids Can Make: Artwork Trivet
My son loves coloring and painting, and it gets to be quite overwheming sometime with all the artwork so we often times like to recycle artwork into gifts to give. Here is a great idea that Big Brother and I did for a couple Christmas presents-- trivets using my son's artwork!
Trivets would make perfect gifts! 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
- art work
- glue gun
Here's how I did it:
- I cut Big Brother's artwork to fit the trivet and applied it with mod podge to make it stick (I didn't smooth it out very well, so the artwork showed a lot of "character").
- After the mod podge coat dried I took it outside and sprayed it down with Polyurethane.
- Once that dried completely, I used a glue gun to apply felt underneath.
Have any artwork you could turn into a gift?
