Following are the instructions to make a trivet similar to the one pictured. It will make a great take along project.”
I collected 35- 3″ circles and 35 bottle capes.
I took needle and thread, turned over the edge of the circle a bit less than 1/4″ and ran a running stitch all the way around in the folded edge.
I put the beer top into the gathered circle and gathered up the thread. Then I tied a knot in the thread.
Now the edges didn’t quite all come together so instead of clipping the thread, I caught the opposite side of the circle and pulled it tight. Then I caught the two sides and pulled them in as well until it looked like this.
I tied it off and made a couple more. Next step was to tack them together.
At this point, just keep covering your bottle caps and tacking them together.
I am opting to make an eclectic version and not a patterned one like I had purchased.
