Decorative Trivet

 
Learning how to make a trivet is a great camp craft idea, as well as a fun rainy day activity. Use it to place hot pans of food and protect your counter, or as a decorative wall hanging for your kitchen! By making an easy popsicle stick craft, you can produce something real and useful for the kitchen!

Instructions

 
  1. Arrange 10 Popstix neatly, side by side.
  2. Now take another 10 Popstix, and glue them down on top of the first set, in the opposite direction. You now have a square with 2 layers. Allow to dry.
  3. Choose  and cut out pictures of fruit, food, flowers, or other nice pictures from magazines or decorative napkins. [Tip: 1 large picture, around the size of your Popstix square, may look more striking than several smaller pictures.] Then choose a color of Tissue Squares that coordinates with your picture.
  4. Using a foam paint brush, apply Modpodge evenly to the surface of the Popstix square. Cover completely with Tissue Squares. Try to cover the edges of the popsicle craft as well, folding the Tissue Squares over the sides and sticking them to the back. Apply another coat of Modpodge. 
  5. Place your cut out picture in the center of the trivet, and coat with Modpodge until it stuck down completely. Allow to dry overnight.
  6. To turn your summer craft into a wall hanging, simply stick an EZ-Hang-Up to the back.
