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.
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.

These cute Halloween/Birthday recycled bottle monsters are perfect for holding candy at your next Birthday or Halloween party.
2 liter plastic drink bottles(washed and dried)
Beforehand, decide what kind of monster you want to make and what colors you need. Sketch a face on paper first.
- Draw the face on the bottle with a marker.
- Cut out the mouth with an exacto knife. Cut off the top of the bottle, too to fill with candy. I don't recommend making pointy teeth as they are sharp and can prick a finger.
- Paint your bottle and make the eyes.
- Add hair or hands with construction paper.
- Fill with candy for your Halloween party or put a light inside and watch them glow.
