This seems like a good idea for making trivets that will work in my kitchen, to place under hot pans, as most yarn material I use is not heat-resistant enough to use in making hot pads or anything else. I particularly love the idea of staining or painting the clothespins first. This looks like such a fun project to do real fast in a weekend!

I love this idea, it is so creative and unusually! I am sick and tired of tea and coffee cup stains everywhere and I am forever forgetting to pick up some coaster so these would be perfect, might even chalk paint then as well. can you use any glue it would a wood type glue be best?

Wow. I never thought of this idea, but it works perfectly. The clothespins are just the right thickness to keep the table from getting burnt from hot items. You could paint these and decorate them all kinds of ways. I could see adding foil to the sides for some bling for college kids. I would add sequins for girly girls. You can even use bold colors for men who live alone or are off at college. Great post! What a unique idea!
