Winter is cold, which means you do whatever it takes to warm up. For me, this is enjoying a cup of hot chocolate (maybe two if I am really cold!). There is really nothing better than snuggling under a blanket, drinking a cup of hot chocolate, and watching the snow slowly drift down from the sky.
To pay homage to my favorite winter pastime, I decided to make a dyed wooden bead trivet for my kettle. I dyed wooden beads and strung them on a leather cord. With a little twist of the strand, the beads fit nicely inside of one another forming a cute little trivet. This would make a great DIY gift for someone who loves kitchen gadgets!
