DIY Burned Cork Trivets with Cricut

I saw someone use a wood burning tool to make a design in a cork trivet and thought how I could do the same thing but using a stencil out of Circuit Vinyl. It worked so well and it was actually quite fun to do!

 

Materials:

                Cricut
                Cricut Tools
                Cricut Smart Vinyl or
                Cricut Vinyl
                Standard Grip mat
                Pen
                Cork Trivet
                Wood Burning Tool
               

 

I started by measuring my trivet.

 

In Design Space I created a circle that was the same size as my trivet. I then designed my image within that circle.

 

When I was happy with the design and where it was I selected the whole design and welded it together. Then I selected the welded image and the circle and sliced it. I deleted all the layers that I didn’t need.

 

I then cut out the design with Cricut Smart Vinyl. If you do not have a Explore 3 or Maker 3 then you can use regular vinyl on a standard grip mat.

 

After it was done cutting, I weeded out the positive space (the space that I wanted to burn in the trivet).

Using Transfer Tape I placed the design onto the trivet.

 

I then traced the inside of the vinyl just like a stencil. I used a pen but you could use anything that would show up on the cork. It will get burned away.

 

After the entire image was traced, I removed the vinyl.

 

Then came the fun part! I used the wood burning toll to follow the pen marks. You will need to figure out what tip works best for you but, I used a chisel type tip and it worked well for me.

 

Here it is all finished! This was such a fun project to try something new!
