Made from sliced wine corks
, the trivet and coasters
are the perfect way to recycle and reuse an item that you may otherwise just toss in the garbage. To make the trivet and coasters, you'll need about 10 or 12 corks which you will cut into slices so that each cork gives you about 8 to 10 slices. Stitch each cork together with two stitches and arrange the corks into your desired geometrical pattern.
Getting a needle through cork is a little difficult. Abigail's instructions don't really tell you how to get the needle and thread through the cork without getting frustrated, so check out these more detailed directions on making wine cork trivets from Still Dottie
