Protect a flat work surface with a piece of wax paper or cardboard before you begin gluing.

Place your rope of pipe cleaners on a flat work surface. Begin coiling the pipe cleaner. Every couple of inches, dab a thin line of hot glue along the edge of the coiled pipe cleaner, and press the next couple of inches of pipe cleaner into it. Hold for a few seconds while the glue cools.

Continue to coil and glue your pipe cleaner rope until you reach the end and your trivet has been formed.”}],”image”:{“@type”:”ImageObject”,”@id”:”https://happyhooligans.ca/trivets-pipe-cleaners-yarn/#schema-image-7baa217fe914fce70ce2ed30cfc327e8″,”inLanguage”:”en-US”,”url”:”https://cdn.happyhooligans.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/coiling-yarn-wrapped-pipe-cleaner.jpg”,”width”:600,”height”:400,”caption”:”coiling yarn wrapped pipe cleaner”}},{“@type”:”HowToStep”,”url”:”https://happyhooligans.ca/trivets-pipe-cleaners-yarn/#how-to-step-1580876025705″,”name”:”How to remove stray bits of glue”,”itemListElement”:[{“@type”:”HowToDirection”,”text”:”If some of your glue squeezed through to the surface of your trivet, you can remove it by doing the following:
