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 or use old fabric 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! Here it is all finished, and I love the way it turned out!
