Been making some mosaic tile trivets with clay base tiles. The base tiles are waved on the bottom. Using various tiles and designs on the tops to keep them interesting, too.

Here are two of them.

First one has such a fun retro feel to this trivet. The redish orange and black really pop. The tiles are 1x1 and the whole trivet is 6x6. Large enough for all pots.




Second one is more calm in colors, but still really pretty. The eggplant purple and mint green look good together. The tiles are 2x2 and the base is of course 6x6.




This is the bottom of the clay base tile.

These are a fun and quick project, so I am sure I will be making more. Plus I've got tons of tiles.  Thanks for checking them out! Smiley

I think I need these to be my first ever grout project.  Where do the base tiles come from?  Love these!

Thank you all! Smiley

The base tiles were from a friends who does tiling. He always has leftovers from jobs, and give me option to get some. These were an after thought, but glad I grabbed some. You could probably find something similar at any home improvement store.

These are so lovely! The red and black one would look great in a retro-style kitchen. Of course, all of them would look really great in my kitchen Wink.
