If you are like me and have heat rings all over your house, then there is no such thing as too many trivets. I had the idea to make this trivet the other day using some rope and wooden beads I had lying around. A while back I purchased these wooden beads for the beaded extension cord project, and I maaaaaay have gone a little overboard on the quantity. Also, I maaaaaaay have a problem with owning too much rope. Especially for someone who owns neither a boat or a truck with which to use said rope.
So what is a girl to do with all these beads and rope? Make an awesome trivot, that’s what!! And you know me – it’s a really simple project, just how I like it.
Just start coiling the rope and glueing as you go (I used hot glue because I thrive on instant gratification), and keep going until you achieve the desired trivet size.
Once you have the trivot to the size you want, go ahead and glue on the beads to act as feet for the trivot. I painted my trivet with black acrylic paint, just because I like the drama. That’s right. I used the words trivet and drama in the same sentence.
