Wooden Bead and Wire Trivet

Bronze Tip Medal for All Time! 59 Tips

Approximate Time: 1 Hour


  • 20 gauge wire
  • 28 large wooden beads
  • 21 medium wooden beads


My trivet measured 4 inches X 4-1/2 inches. You can buy the large assorted packs of beads for approximately $10, and there will be enough to make a trivet.


  1. Lay out the beads into a pattern that you like and then measure the wire accordingly. You will be going back through the rows, so you will need a lot of wire. (I used approximately 80 inches of wire.)
  2. Find center, then thread the first and second rows of the trivet onto your wire, then you will go back through the second row and continue doing this with your rows until you have finished your trivet.
  3. At the end you will need to go back through your previous row (or two) to hide the ends of your wire.

These beads look identical to the beaded car seat cushions. If you have one or find an old one it would make an inexpensive source of these wooden beads and keep a damaged seat cover out of the trash.


Usually it is the line that the beads are strung on that gets damaged and the beads are fine for other uses.

They do look like those beaded seat covers, speakeasy and that is a good idea.

(Oops. I was at the store the other day and noticed that the pack of bead I had bought previously were $4, not $10.)
