Looking for a simple weekend craft? How about making some DIY Trivets for your kitchen?
I’d been wanting to work with wood beads on a project for a long time. When I came across a wood bead trivet at West Elm, I knew that I could recreate it for a fraction of the cost.
Making the trivet was seriously the simplest DIY ever and one that your kiddos could help you do for Christmas presents! You basically thread wood beads on string to make it, but I’ll link the full tutorial below (I wrote it a few years ago for another site when I was writing for them).
I’m also going to round up a few other lovely DIY options for hot pads that you might love as well.
Learn to make trivets out of wood craft beads and other supplies. Perfect to use as a hot pad in the kitchen.
Wooden Trivets (Without Tools!)
I love how modern these wood craft beads look when placed in a triangle. The tutorial on this proejct is simple, but smart!
If you are wanting a more retro-looking hot pad in your kitchen, then this project is it! Aren't these wood clothespins just the cutest?
This is my wood craft bead trivet project. It can be completed in less than 10 minutes with mininmal supplies. Both are a win in my book.
Scandinavian style knotted trivet
The award for the chicest trivet definitely goes to this knotted hot pad. I just adore how these look, don't you?
I've always been curious about weaving and think this project could be done out of many different fabrics. It could be a great trivet to make when you are intersted in ucpcyling a garment, too.
During the winter months, I always think it’s fun to start projects that keep our hands busy and are simple. Making one or two of these hot pads might just be the thing to do.
You know I’m all about wood beads right now. So loving this
