Macrame Trivets

These little macrame trivets are among my favorite things in my kitchen—they add such an attractive little pop of color and have great practical use. Don’t be fooled by their delicate appearance, they’re sturdy enough to support a good-sized serving dish and provide great heat insulation to protect your table. I hang mine on cup hooks by my cabinets, so they double as decoration as well!

    Take your embroidery hoop, and set aside the larger exterior hoop. Cut a piece of thread or twine that is at least 30 ft long, and fold it in half. Using the interior embroidery hoop, create a lark's head knot by placing the loose ends of the twine down the center, pulling it up the front of the hoop, and through the loop. Tighten the knot.
