DIY Cork and Jute Trivets – Satsuma Designs

Trivets seem so traditional to me and I love it! Using a trivet with a hot dish usually means that friends and family are gathered together to share stories of the day, ups and downs, hopefully some jokes and definitely some hot and tasty food. My sister made me a few cork trivets for Christmas the year before last and I use them constantly. I want to repay the great gift with my own version this year and came up with these quick and crafty cork and jute trivets. It took me all of 5 minutes to whip these up and I'm happy with the result. Happy enough to gift them instead of stashing in my own kitchen drawer.

Here's what you'll need for your quick and crafty cork and jute trivets:

  • thin cork roll in 1/8 or 1/16" thick. Here's a roll on Amazon for $11.34 on Prime
  • jute rope. Here's the kind I use for crafts
  • jute twine. Just a little thinner to use as an accent on your acorn or other shape.
  • glue gun
  • glue
  • scissors or rotary blade

Here's what you'll do to make your quick and crafty cork and jute trivets:

Fire up your glue gun Then, start by selecting your shape. I went with an acorn that I think is fun and evokes the fall and winter and reminds me of chipmunks, which I love.

Draw a template on scratch paper that you'll transfer to your cork.

Transfer template to cork and cut out shape.

Measure about a yard of jute rope and start on the INSIDE of your shape and begin moving out with the rope, gluing as you go. When you're done with your rope section, hit the end with a little glue and tuck it under a row.

Now use your jute twine to create a little accent area like I did with the acorn stem.

Et voila! C'est tout! Now, shoot out an email inviting friends and family over for a potluck and ask each to bring a hot dish so you can show off your fabulous work! Enjoy!
