My favorite kind of DIY project is one that brings a little life to an otherwise purely practical item. In this simple project, I turn trivets into pureÂ playfulness for yourÂ table or bar using wooden baubles and candy-colored paints. â€“Â Mandy Pellegrin of Fabric Paper Glue
Fourteen (14)Â 1.5″ wooden half-spheresÂ per trivet
Heavy duty glue
Step One:Â Give the half spheres a paint job. I left a few bareÂ andÂ gave a few some quick and dirty brushstroke dots. For the remainder, I taped off half with painters tapeÂ and gaveÂ them a couple of coats of candy-colored paints.
Step Two:Â Lay out the spheres in the arrangement shown on a sheet of scrap paper, and outline it using a ruler and pen/pencil to create a template.
Step Three:Â Cut out theÂ template about 1/2″ smaller all the way around than your outline from the previous step, and use it to cut the same shape from a piece of felt.
Step Four:Â Glue the spheres into place atop the felt. Enjoy!
