Decorating the Thanksgiving table with natural elements can also include functional items like trivets.
Cutting these leaf-shaped cork trivets couldn’t be easier when using dowloadable templates. Get creative and make your own designs.
Flat squares of cork (available at most craft stores)
Craft knife or X-ACTO knife
Leaf templates (we downloaded ours from marthastewart.com.)
Cut out the printed templates with a pair of scissors.
With a piece of masking tape, secure the template to the piece of cork and trace around the outline with a marker. Remove the tape and finish tracing the template.
Place the cork on the cutting mat. With a craft knife, cut around the outline of the leaf.
Turn over to use.
