Are you looking for a way to add extra counter space to your kitchen or as a burner cover for your electric stove, but don't want to spend a lot of money on a stove top cover? Look no further! We are providing you with a step-by-step guide so you can learn how to make your own stove top covers for your electric stove using materials you likely already have in your home.

Materials you will need:

  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors or a cutting tool
  • Ruler
  • Pen or pencil
  • Parchment paper or wax paper
  • Fabric (at least 2 yards)
  • Batting or foam padding (at least 2 yards)
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Iron and ironing board


  1. Measure your stove top to determine the size of your cover. Make sure to measure the width, length, and depth of the stove top.
  2. Cut a piece of parchment paper or wax paper to the size of your stove top. Use this as a template to cut your fabric and padding.
  3. Lay your fabric face down on a flat surface. Place the padding on top of the fabric, making sure it is centered.
  4. Using your sewing machine or needle and thread, sew the fabric and padding together around the edges. Leave a small opening on one side to turn the cover right side out.
  5. Turn the cover right side out through the opening. Use an iron to press the cover flat and sew the opening closed.
  6. Place the cover on your stove top and enjoy your new, homemade glass stove top cover!
By making your own stovetop cover or if it serves as a stove top protector, you can customize the size and fabric to match your kitchen décor. Plus, you'll save money by using materials you already have on hand. However, if you prefer to buy a glass top stove cover instead of making one yourself, the Meliusly Electric Stove Top Cover is a great option. It is heat resistant, easy to clean, made of high-quality rubber materials, versatile, and space-saving.
