Still searching for the perfect gift for Mom? These handmade trivets are a great idea. You’ll need: 4 copper pipe corner fittings, a balsa wood rod that fits snuggly into the pipe coner, a small hand saw, yarn, and scissors. Start by cutting 4 equal pieces from the balsa wood rod. Pick the size according to how big you want the trivet to be. I made 3 concentric trivets so that they look good in a group. (sized around 3.5 square inches, 5 square inches, and 7 square inches) Then insert the wood pieces into the corner fittings in the shape of a square. Next wrap the wood in yarn, and you’re done!¬†They can even hang on the wall as art when they’re not being used. Another great gift for Mom is the Carhartt Women’s Clarksburg Quarter-Zip Sweatshirt. It’s comfy and slightly fitted and a perfect Mother’s Day present.
