Today we are adding some cozy texture to our kitchen with these felt ball trivets! The holiday season is approaching and usually that means dinner parties and entertaining. If you want to protect your tables from hot platters and pans, you can easily craft up a DIY trivet or two using felted balls in your favorite colors. This project is super simple, and also a great gift option for tweens and teens to make for their family members!
Trivets with Texture
We used 3cm felt balls for our DIY trivet, but we also recommend using 2cm balls. Benzie Design has our favorite felted ball selection! We went with a fall color scheme for our trivets, but you should be able to find felt balls in any color imaginable.
Arrange your felt balls before you start sewing to make sure that the finished trivet looks cohesive. We made our DIY trivet a perfect square with seven balls on each side. This measures to about 6.5 inches wide. Follow the step-by-step photo tutorial below to craft your trivet. You can also download the written instructions at the end of this post.
While you are making your trivets, feel free to make some matching coasters! You can use the same technique, or arrange the balls in a circle instead. It’s up to you!
