Felt pom pom trivets are a fun and creative way to add a touch of color and texture to your home. These trivets are hand-sewn using pure wool felt balls, making them not only beautiful but also durable and heat-resistant. Not only that, but wool felt is a sustainable material, so you can feel good about your crafty creations.
Before you begin, gather all of the materials you will need:
Pure wool felt balls in various colors. You can find these at most craft stores or online.
Needle and thread. Make sure to choose a thread that matches the color of your felt balls as closely as possible, so that it blends in and doesn’t detract from the overall design.
Pins. These will help you to arrange the felt balls in the design you have in mind before you start sewing.
Step 1: Plan the Design The first step in creating your felt pom pom trivet is to decide on the size and shape of your trivet. You can make it any size you like, but a good starting point is a square or rectangular shape.
Once you have decided on the size and shape, it’s time to start arranging the felt balls on a flat surface to create a pleasing design. This is the fun part, so take your time and play around with different color combinations and patterns. Use the pins to hold the felt balls in place while you work.
Step 2: Sew the Felt Balls Together Once you have a design you like, it’s time to start sewing the felt balls together. Thread your needle and knot the end. Starting from the center of the trivet, sew the felt balls together using a whipstitch. Make sure to keep the stitches tight and close together to hold the felt balls securely in place.
As you work, keep the design in mind and make sure the felt balls are arranged in the way you want them to be. Take your time and enjoy the process.
Step 3: Finish the Edges Once all the felt balls are sewn together, sew around the edges of the trivet to secure any loose threads and give a neat finish. This will also help to hold the felt balls in place.
Step 4: Use Once you’re finished, let the trivet cool for a bit before using it as a trivet for hot dishes or pots. You can also use it as a coaster, or even as a decorative piece on a coffee table or shelves.
Congratulations! You have just created a beautiful, handmade felt pom pom trivet. The felt balls are made from pure wool, so they are not only beautiful but also eco-friendly and sustainable. Feel free to experiment with different colors and designs to create unique and personalized trivets for your home. Enjoy!
