DIY clothespin trivets can be a fun kids craft that is perfect to give as a gift. They are super easy to make and useful as well! They would be a great craft to make with a scout group.
This week is Craft Lightning y’all! We are making 15 minute crafts or less that are all perfect for scout groups. You can see each day’s crafts at the bottom of the post for that day. Stay tuned as Saturday I will round up all of the crafts into one big round up that will give you all of the scout inspiration that you will ever need!
If you hate leaving rings behind on your furniture from hot or cold drinks, this one is for you!
This craft is so easy to make, and it’s customizable! You can design this however large or small you need. You could use this as a coaster for coffee cups or as a full-sized trivet for hot dishes or pots.
How to Make a Clothespin Trivet
Supplies needed for DIY clothespin trivets:
That is it! This is such a simple craft idea! I thought it would be great to SHOW you how to make these instead of just written instructions so here is the super quick video.
Steps to make a clothespin trivet
Take clothespins apart and discard metal pieces.
Then, turn each piece so the inside of the clothespin is now facing out.
Glue the backs of each clothespin together and allow to dry completely.
After they dry, glue each clothespin pair together at the point, alternating each one so they form a square shape.
We left our clothespins plain but you would also stain them, dye them, or paint them before assembling.
Your DIY clothespin trivets are complete and ready to be given to mom, dad, grandma, or grandpa!
Now are you ready for even more 15 minute crafts that are perfect for scout groups? First of all if you want to thank the volunteers for your scout group, make these thank you notes from Happy Go Lucky.
Another way to thank anyone that works with your group is to have the girls or boys make something. These tie dye scarves from Housewife Hellraiser are easy and oh so cute.
Make a fun trench coat for your girl scout for a fun twist when selling cookies!
