How to Make Painted Rope Trivets
- 6" wooden plaques
- natural rope (jute, sisal)
- heat-resistant adhesive
- acrylic paint in desired colors
Begin by Adding Glue
Place a drop of glue in the middle of the wooden plaque.
Start Coiling Rope
Make a small coil out of the end of rope, and press it in the glue until it sticks.
Create a Larger Coil
Add more glue around the center coil, and wrap the rope around to create a larger coil.
Cover Entire Plaque With Rope
Continue to glue and wrap until the entire plaque is covered in rope.
Cut End of Rope
Make one additional coil of rope on the outside of the plaque. Glue and cut the end of the rope.
Once dry, add fun stripes or shapes using various colors of acrylic paint.
Use your finished trivets on all your surfaces to protect them from hot pots, pans and tea kettles.
