AWESOME CLOTHES PEGS TRIVETS
For this project you will need: Clothespins (roughly 24 per trivet) Paint/stain Super strong glue First up take apart roughly one bazillion clothespins. Okay, about 24 per trivet actually! Now, I painted mine but I kind of wish I had stained them. Painting can be done after but staining of the pins should be done before moving on. Make colorful and inexpensive trivets out of clothespins!
Aren’t these wooden clothespin trivets fun? Play around with how you can put your pins together and still form a circle. Carefully glue each pin together… …in the shape that you worked out. Once the glue has dried for any sets you might have made you can begin gluing those together to form the trivets. Some, you’ll just glue the pins right to one another. Hit them with some paint and you’re good to go! Now, it’s a good thing to note that the more care you take with your trivets the better they will look in general. I was using my glue in an enclosed space and things started to get a bit wonky. But as usual I didn’t notice until after I was done that the fumes had been effecting me and my work got sloppier and sloppier.
Be sure to use glue such as this, and anything that suggests proper ventilation according to package directions or brain cells be darned! : ) In the end these guys are pretty fabulous and I’m excited about them and I like that they look like colorful snowflakes. So I guess we’re all happy. Yay!
