Gather your tools and materials.
Paint a couple beads in the color of your choice and set aside to dry.
Once the beads are dry, string 14 beads onto the elastic. Create a circle and feed the end of your elastic through the first bead to join the circle.
Adjust your elastic so you have one long end and one short. Put the short end through one more bead.
Tie off the short end tightly against the elastic joining the beads.
String 7 more beads onto the long end of elastic and feed back through what would make the 8th bead to complete the smaller circle.
Feed the elastic through one bead of the larger circle (on the opposite side of the first knot) and tie off the loose end tightly.
Pull the knots really tightly to secure and trim off the excess elastic cord.
For large or small pots and pans. Just fold out the inner loop to extend the trivet!
