There’s no time like Thanksgiving to make us all take stock of what we do or don’t have for entertaining! Do we have enough plates? Glassware? Will we be out of forks by dessert? One thing I always find I don’t have enough of are trivets. They are the last thing I want to spend money on but you need a bunch of them for your holiday meal. I have a super easy way to make your own DIY Tile Trivets!

Thanksgiving is an intricate dance of getting all the side dishes timed perfectly to get to the table at the same time as the turkey. And all those hot pots need somewhere to sit. All you need to do is head to your local hardware store and make these easy DIY trivets. You’ll have a set of matching trivets (I don’t know why it bums me out when trivets don’t match…), a bountiful table of food and a full stomach in no time!
How to Make DIY Tile Trivets
I found this 4-pack of marble tiles at my local hardware store. Head to the tile section and see what your store has to offer. They have all kinds of sizes and colors. The pack I chose was less than $7 and is a neutral color that will go with just about every decor. In another section of the store, I found these stick-on felt pads to keep the tiles from moving around and protect your wood tables.See, so easy. If you want these to be more permanent you could always give them a little dab of hot glue or E6000. If you wanted to make these into more of a hostess gift, you could easily pick up a cute rub-on saying from your local craft store or even hand paint a personal sentiment on the bottom. My writing looks like a 6 year olds so I decided to leave mine plain. But as with all my crafts, I encourage you to take my idea and make them even better. Put your own stamp on them!
A Modern Trivet to Make Your Table Pretty
And there you have it. A set of matching trivets for your holiday entertaining or your Thanksgiving table. Just add food and wine and your table is ready to party. These modern trivets fit right into any table decor and won’t stand out unless you want them to. Just pack them away with your other holiday decor and bring them out next year.
