You only need two supplies to create this beautiful trivet! Try making several in different shapes and sizes to have a complete collection of geometric trivets for your kitchen.
Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 30 minutes
Age range: 12 and up
Things to do:
1. The first step is pulling your clothespins apart. Grab either side and twist in opposite directions until the metal clip pops loose.
2. Reassemble the clothespins using hot glue. Run a line of glue down the flat side of the wood and attach it to another flat side.
3. When you’ve reassembled your pack of clothes pins, arrange them in the shape you want your trivet to be and use hot glue to hold them in place. For a round trivet, putting the thin ends of the clothespins in the center so they’re all touching.
