How to Make a Popsicle Stick & Wooden Bead Trivet

Brilliant Trivet tutorial from harmonicmama.com

You can never really have enough trivets, especially if you entertain a lot. They're a bit tricky to find in the store, so it's a good thing that you can make one inexpensively. We love how the trivet looks a natural color palette in this Popsicle stick trivet, which furthers the vintage feel. In color, it's adorably whimsical.

Supplies:

45 to 50 Popsicle sticks
45 to 50 1/2″ wooden beads
45 to 50 1/4″ wooden beads
2 yards of 1mm elastic cord (you’ll have extra)

This first, and most laborious part is the drilling of the Popsicle sticks. You need to drill three, 1/16″ holes in each Popsicle stick. One hole at 6/16″ another at 2″ and another at 3 3/4″. I found that stacking 3 on top of each other works pretty well but once you get higher than that it’s hard for them to stay aligned. I used 45 Popsicle sticks in my trivet but you could use a few more or a few less, whatever works to make a circle.

Putting it all together.

Tie a knot in the end of each of the lengths of elastic and then feed it through a Popsicle stick. Pull the the 8″ length through the hole 6/16″ from the bottom, the 18″ length through the hole in the middle and the 28″ length through the hole at the top. Next put a 1/2″ bead through the elastic at the top a 1/4″ bead through the elastic in the middle and nothing on the bottom. Thread on the next Popsicle stick and repeat that pattern again until you have a circle.
