Sometimes when I am thrifting I get ideas….I end up buying things thinking I’ll come home and up-cycle something. Here’s one of those type of projects.
I bought a little jewelry box for 75 cents. It had an 4″ tile in the top. My plan was to take the tile out of the top, paint the box black and then make a punch needle project and put it in the center. I had hubby pry the tile from the top of the box. As I was throwing the tile in the garbage I thought it might be fun to cover it and make into a trivet…
Here’s what I did….
I glued a piece of batting onto the top of tile.
It was fine…nothing totally amazing…but a bit cute. I figured I would just toss it in the drawer and use it. Then one of the kids was picking up and put the trivet back on top to the box.
Now I am confused…
This looks kinda cute.”
….but I still like the idea of painting the box black and putting a punch needle project in it. Oh well, either way, it was fun playing.
