Do you need more trivets for the holidays? Do you need an easy gift and inexpensive gift idea for the holidays? This is it! Super easy, inexpensive, and make it your way.
You will need the following:
2 pieces of craft felt
Newspaper or old phone book paper
Fabric of your choice
Hot glue or sewing machine
Optional – pinking shears
Place several layers newspaper or old phone book paper on top of your first piece of craft felt. The paper is your heat protection padding.
**An alternative would be to cut an old T-shirt, old fabric, old towel/washcloth inside so you can hand wash it.
Hot glue or sew the top piece of craft felt to the bottom piece of craft felt sealing in your newspaper/phone book paper.
Use a scissors or pinking shears to cut fabric of your choice to fit on top of your craft fabric.
Hot glue or sew your fabric onto your craft felt (the top of your trivet).
Optional – use your pinking shears to trim the edges of the felt.
Use to place your hot pots, pans, or casserole dishes on to keep your table safe.
Great project for kids to help make as well!

Thank you Elvira, and thanks for stopping by.
This is clever, perfect for people who don’t like to sew.
Thank you Julie, and I agree – not everyone has a sewing machine or knows how. Plus it gives kids an opportunity to make some thing like this as well.
Great idea for the upcoming holidays when most people will have more dishes and pans to handle. These would make gifts too. Thanks for sharing on Sunday’s Best.
Thank you Rhonda, so true about the holidays. Yes, they do make great gifts and you can personalize the colors for each person.
