Let's Do This!

Step 1: 

Spray paint the bamboo trivet and the letter 'U' white. Let dry.

Step 2: 

  • Take the painters tape and apply in between the open slots of the trivet.
  • Paint the exposed white with red acrylic paint. Let dry.
  • Carefully remove tape. If you need to touch up and red or white paint, do so now.

Step 3: 

  • Cut out and trace randomly placed star shapes.
  • Paint the 'U' blue, leaving the stars white.
  • While the paint is still wet, top with glitter.
  • Using the blue puffy paint, outline each star shape.

Step 4: 

  • Paint the letters 'S' and 'A' with red paint. Let dry.
  • Apply adhesive pearls along the right edges of each letter.
  • Outline both letters with blue puffy paint.
  • Add details by adding dots of white and blue puffy paint. Let dry.

Step 5: 

  • Begin gluing the nylon rope around the edge of the trivet with hot glue. 
  • As you make your second pass, be sure to leave a bit of the rope loose at the top center as a way to hang the piece when it's finished. 

Step 6:

Hot glue the finished letters to the trivet in a diagonal from top left to bottom right.
