DIY wooden bead trivets

A super simple DIY.
You'll need approximately 1" wood beads, leather cord, olive oil (optional), and
scissors.
I think you can just about figure this out with no explanation but here's what I did.
String beads onto cord and loop the ends to make a simple, crossover knot. Pull as
tight as possible and double knot.
I left a loop at the top to give the option of hanging. Use individually or together.
The olive oil is to finish the beads, if you'd like. I rubbed the middle ring of
beads with olive oil to give them a slightly richer color.

  2. totally loving this idea. I was thinking it could be possible to just do one continuous ring?

    I had thought about that but this gives you more bang for your buck, plus, I couldn't figure out how to do that. If the holes in the beads were bigger or if I used thinner cord so that I could weave back through the beads more than once, it might work.

    I updated the post, thank you for pointing that out. It was used to finish some of the beads.

  12. This might be a silly question, but are all the circles tied together or do they stay separate. I think this would be pretty if they beads were dyed (ala martha stewart)

  13. Meg-the individual circles are not tied together but that is an option. I thought about making it like that, one solid circle of beads, but couldn't figure out how it might work.

    Hope that helps!
