Wooden Bead Trivets DIY
All you need are wooden beads (0.8''-1.2'' diameter) and sturdy cotton or jute twine.
Thread beads onto the twine until the trivet has the desired size (you can check the size by making a circle with the threaded beads). I used wooden beads with a diameter of 1 inch and used 14 and 18 beads for my trivets. When you're ready, form a circle and tie a tight knot with the ends of the twine. You can try to hide the ends of the twine, but I chose to leave some inches. I think it looks good.
And that's already it! A great idea would also be to paint some or all beads beforehand. I think one white or one neon pink bead would look great! Or one half colored and the other half natural? Please show me yours if you try it out!
