for those kids whose Dad loves to cook, this Father’s Day Wood Trivet is the perfect project that he will really appreciate. If dad’s not a cook, you could make him a special coaster for his favorite cold drink. The kids will be bursting with pride every time this gift is put in use.

Instructions

Trace around a bowl or plate on a piece of corrugated cardboard. We used a 9″ bowl and didn’t have quite enough wood disks to finish. An 8″ trivet could probably be completed with 1 pack of disks but since they are natural, sizes of the disks will vary.

Starting from the middle, begin gluing (hot glue, tacky glue or wood glue) the wood disks to the cardboard. Fit the pieces as close together as possible. We chose to let final pieces hang off the edge.Image of Fathers Day Wood Trivet

To create a shiny, wipe-clean finish use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. And this stuff is magic. It gives a resin-like coating to your projects but is very kid-friendly. The tube is easy to squeeze, there’s no smell, it cleans up with water and dries clear in a few minutes. Place your finished project on a piece of wax paper. Lightly coat each disk with dimensional magic. Pop any bubbles with a pin. As it settles, some of the fluid will spill over the edges of the disks into spaces between. This will bond the disks permanently to the cardboard. Let dry. Some of the fluid may run off the edges and underneath the trivet. Just turn it over and let dry.

Using the same bowl or plate used to trace onto the cardboard, trace around onto a piece of foam or felt. Cut out and glue to the back.
