Roeshel had painted this adorable mat so I knew it could be done
This hot pad is gorgeous.
I had made a quick run to the Dollar tree and saw this garden mat
Inside the packaging I could not see that it had an area cut out of it so I had to rethink things.
I cut out 3 more… using some square dowels that I had on hand.
I pushed the dowels into each of my cut out areas.
I painted the sides in a metallic silver and painted the top a mixture of khaki and the silver so the spaces wouldn’t show the yellow through them.
Hot glue your rocks down.
I had my 2 bags of rocks divided–and only laid flat ones onto the glue.
Now I have a cool pot holder OR I can set it by the door and use it as a neat door mat for people to put their muddy shoes.
2 bags of rocks = $2
I had the glue and paint on hand.
I did a fun “KIDS” project and posted it at the DIY Club. You all know how popular Chalkboard paint is –you might really like.
