Stone trivets are fun and easy DIY projects that will result in useful things for around the house and are truly worthwhile. Whether for kids or adults, we found this to be a great project. Trivets are so useful for protecting your countertops and tables from hot teapots, pans, plates, etc. Additionally, one made from natural stones is even better.

So, where did we find the instructions for making a stone trivet? We found a great website that offers spectacular DIY projects, as well as a wealth of great stories and rhymes for kids. The site is the brain-child of two librarians named Leah and Mollie. They seem to really love kids and it shows in their work.

These DIY trivets start with a cork base, black paint, a foam brush, epoxy glue, and rocks (e.g., river rocks) for a natural earthy trivet for all occasions. You can go out collecting your own rocks or just buy some at Target or your local dollar store. The tutorial then gives you step-by-step instructions (complete with pictures) to help you through the project from start to finish. We especially liked the personal notes from the writers about mistakes that were inadvertently made while learning how to make these stone trivets. We found the authors’ personal notes helpful, charming, and informative as they appeared along the way. Mainly we were grateful that they made those shared their mistakes so that we could learn from them.

Most importantly, don’t forget that these trivets make great gifts, too. Follow along with the clearly designed tutorial and you and your kids can be making handy and practical stone trivets in no time at all. In fact, this would be a great project for your kids to make as a thoughtful present for their favorite teacher. And, if you decide to give one to Grandma, we think she’ll love it, too.
