This is such an easy project — and it’s great for housewarming, hostess, wedding and birthday gifts! It’s an easy #LowesCreator project anyone – even kids – can do!
Even though it’s easy, it has a bold, modern look. And you can customize it to your recipient’s decor!
Here’s how to make this easy color-blocked coaster & trivet DIY gift idea:
You can create this in different sizes. All you need are:
- Valspar paint samples from Lowe’s (I used two colors)’
- High-quality masking tape (I used the 3M Blue – the cheap stuff won’t work well on the cork)
- Inexpensive paintbrushes – the foam ones at Lowe’s will do
- cork trivets or coasters — from any store
Here’s how easy it is to do:
Just tape geometric patterns like the pictures above – or however you like: stripes, triangles, whatever.
Using your paint samples, paint contrasting colors.
Let dry, and then peel the tape off.
I liked how peeling the tape exposes the natural cork color, making the trivets or coasters even more interesting.
You can use these in the kitchen, office, or anywhere you need a trivet or coaster.
It’s also a great way to experiment with color. You can introduce a color to your room to see how you like it … before you make a commitment to a larger section! Or you can custom-paint your gifts to match your recipients’ decor.
