Do you need more trivets for the holidays?  I feel like I am always looking for trivets for hot dishes and thought I would try my hand at diy trivets.  This has become one of my favorite projects and they make great gifts! 

This is a great diy project that doesn’t take any special skills.   It’s the perfect personalized gift for the holidays. 

Materials List:

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 for this diy trivet project would be to use an old T-shirt, old fabric, old towel or rag cut to size for the 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!  Happy crafting!!
