If you frequently entertain or just really like wine, you can put a collection of old corks to use with this genius trivet. Corks are fantastically heat-safe, will stand up to the elements if you accidentally leave them outside and also have a rustic-chic look. This particular trivet was made by drilling through each cork, then stringing them together in an abstract diamond pattern. But for an easier alternative that uses only hot glue, try this tutorial from CraftyNest.
