I've always loved vintage straw trivets, the ones with the colorful patterns and designs. They're so fun, and I see them every so often at the thrift stores in my area usually for just 25 cents, but sometimes for up to a dollar.

They must have made kajillions of these back in the day because there seems to be no end to the color combos and designs that I'm finding.


I've been collecting these for quite a while now, just waiting until I had enough to create a fun wreath.

Here's the bunch of trivets that I'm using, along with some jute twine, and a homemade wooden wreath form that I picked up at a garage sale for a dollar.


You could use any kind of flat wreath form.

Just in case the wooden form could be seen between the trivets I decided to cover it with the jute twine.


I glued it in place where I started, wound it around in one continuous piece (how many times I do not know), and glued it in place when I was all the way around.

So much better. Honestly, jute twine is one of my favorite things.

Then, using invisible nylon thread I attached my bottom layer by poking the thread through the trivets and tying it around the back.


I chose less colorful trivets for this layer.

For my top layer I used trivets that were more colorful and interesting, and I attached them with the invisible thread as well.

And here's my finished wreath. Because I used nylon thread the trivets have not been damaged in any way and this can be taken apart at any time.

    You did a great job. I look at home talk at least twice a day I probably should be doing some of these ideas. I guess I don't have the time but then again I have time to look at all of the projects that other people do.
