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.
