Craft Party Makes Wood Planked Trivets

Girls + Crafts
= Party!
Now that's some fall fun.
We're making Wood Planked Trivets,
an idea I found over at A Beautiful Mess.
There is great direction there on assembly detail.
We made some fall themed trivets
Pin It!
and some layered paint stripes.
My Dad helped me cut all of the furring strips
(82 cents for an 8' board at Menards)
into 8" sections
and drill press each section with 1/4" holes
about 1 1/2" in from edge.
The trees are telling me it's time,
so come on girls,
Let's go.
Grab your 5 wood sections.
Sand and put a wash of paint on.
For the fall themed trivets,
assemble everything before basing in white.
For the striped trivets,
paint each board before assembly.

Truly a day of abundant blessing -
together with friends and family.

I want a dad with denim "dad" shirt on, who will help with the not-fun-for-me-details of my craft projects! Give him a hug for me! (My dad always wore work jeans with the hammer holder loops and white Hanes t-shirts. I miss him most in the fall and when I'm at the lake.) Nice craft project and a lucky girl with her dad!

Looks like fun and that project is darling. I would make one in a larger scale for me boys room. Love them!

You always do something I love! Can you please move to Georgia so we can hang out? Maybe you could just fly south for the winter!!! I'm soooooo doing this with friends. Did you put anything on to seal them or is the paint enough to withstand heat?

Deb Hrabik said...

Don't tempt me --ah, the warm south!
You know, we didn't use any sealer, but I have been reading that a spray on poly would work.

just a great idea, and anyone can have fun with it! LOVE the candy corn one!!
