I love owls. I have an owl lamp, two owl vases, and even owl earrings. While perusing my favorite thrift shop, I found an adorable owl figurine for $1.97. In its original painted state, it looked a little dated. The various shades of brown made the little guy look a bit angry. I knew with a touch of spray paint it could take on a new, modern life.

I’ve seen loads and loads of craft projects using wine corks, especially on Pinterest. I’ve seen jewelry displays, bulletin boards, coasters, and even bath mats. It took me over a year of saving up corks, but I finally had enough to do a proper project. I set my sights on a trivet that would both protect the table/counter from hot dishes as well as look beautiful. Several of the trivets I’ve seen used frames or shadow boxes as the structure. I had a great wooden art box from my younger years. The depth of the box was the same as corks–definitely meant to be.
