How To: Make a Cork Trivet

Pin it button big

We love instant gratification. So this quick and easy project is right up our alley. It's one of many that you can find in Danny Seo's book, Simply Green Parties.

To make the trivet, all you need are corks, an adjustable metal pipe clamp and a screwdriver. Here's what you do:

Gather up your corks (real or synthetic), and arrange them inside the clamp. The corks should be densely packed together, so there aren't any loose corks falling out later. With the screwdriver, tighten the clamp around the corks.

That's it! And now you've got another excuse to open a bottle of wine tonight.

(Psst: If you want to watch Seo putting one together, check out the instructional YouTube video.)
