Hi Everyone!

With the entire site being shut down soon, we are trying to find a way to keep the craftalong going. It sounds like the admins of Craftster are trying to find a way to bring the site back in some shape or form. In the meantime, several ideas have been thrown around about how we can maybe continue our nerdy craftalong until a solution has been provided. In order to make sure we can keep in touch, I'm creating an email group so I can easily email out info to everyone when we know what our next step is. If you haven't already seen the group PM and want to be added to my email list, send me an email with your Craftster name included (so I know who you are!), and I will make sure you're added.

My email address is my Craftster user name @gmail.com

I love these!  You could probably use any sort of circle shaped hoop to make them, right?  I was using my ice cream lids (the plastic around the outside) to make small wreaths, but I never thought of using them the way you have!  I really like the sunflower.

Thank you!

Yes, you can use any type of hoop if youre making a decoration of some sort. But if you want to make a functional trivet, you need to use natural materials that wont burn or melt when heated by a hot dish or pot. Smiley
