How to Make a Wintertime Trivet
Step 1: Line up 12 regular craft sticks or 7 mini jumbo craft sticks alongside each other.
Step 2: Using regular sticks with regular sticks, or mini jumbo with mini jumbo, glue a craft stick horizontally across the top and the bottom of the lined-up group.
Step 3: Paint the top of the trivet. Let dry, then paint the bottom the same color. Let dry. If necessary, apply a second coat.
Step 4: Paint four wooden beads the same color as the trivet. Glue one bead at each end of the horizontal craft sticks to create four feet. Let dry completely.
Step 5: Paint or stamp a design on top of the trivet.
Step 6: With adult help, spray acrylic sealer over the surface to protect the finished trivet.
