Trivets are must have things on every kitchen. They usually protect your dinning table and countertops from heat damage that skillets and bowls can make. As you know we’re fans of reusing things and here is an idea how you can make your own trivet using wine corks. Of course you should drink a lot of wine because for a medium-sized trivet you need at least 50 corks. The idea is to arrange them vertically and tight into a circle. A metal house clamp is an easy to find think in hardware stores and it can easily fix these corks together. It won’t cost you more than $3.
