It has been way too long since my last DIY and after a trip to Michaels the other day, I found a pack of dark cork boards and thought they would make for a great trivet or table runner. A pack of four will run you about $8.00 (not to shabby) and I love the texture and a sense of outdoors they bring as a backdrop for any season. You could even add push pins with tags to label a buffet. I have a feeling there will be more ideas to come, but for now this was a great solution for a quick after work nosh set-up of. Happy Monday!
