Mosaic Tile Trivet

I made these awhile ago but still love them enough to share them as a project. A "trivet" is what you use to put your hot pots, etc, on. These were super easy to make. I bought a bucket of broken tiles at Home Depot for $1 (what a deal - the bucket alone was worth that!) and then bought a couple of color tiles as well. We happened to have extra grout hanging around. You just cut a piece of wood to the size you need, hot glue on broken tile pieces (yes, just hot glue!), cover with grout and wipe off the excess. I think these would make great gifts. I found the project idea in Lowe's free magazine, "Creative Ideas".
