Corncob Holder Starburst

Check out this little starburst trivet.

Made from dollar store corncob holders!

Mine are small ones, but these can be made in any size - even huge!  I love it with a teeny succulent set in the middle.

Tons of ways to use it.  Maybe jolly up your summer barbecue table, with a starburst dish for candy, condiments or fixin's:

It would also be cute as a candle holder or a kinda kitschy, mini starburst mirror.
The DIY?  Two steps, two minutes, no tools needed.  Ready?  Here we go.

Step One - cut a circle out of foam core board.

Step Two - poke the aforementioned dollar store corncob holders into the foam core circle.

Um...that's it, people!  Your trivet-thing is done!

Just add stuff to the middle, set on a table and bask in the cute.

Note: I'm calling it a trivet, for lack of a better descriptive word, but it would not take heat well.  So don't set any hot pans on top!

Hmm, I am also thinking about making a great big one to hang up, with either a mirror or a photo in the center.  If I painted the corncob rays silver, I'd have metallic starburst wall decor.

What say ye, does anyone think they'd try it?  What would you do with yours?


  1. How cute is this, and it's so 4th of Julyish. Thanks for sharing this ray of sunshine...that's what it reminds me of.

  2. Very smart.. before reading the end part of your post, I also think about a starburst can design a start-burst mirror with it too for a kitchen or dining hall area specially! .. looks really smart :)

  3. That's a great idea. I was wondering how you got the corn cob holders in there!!

  4. What a fun idea! When I saw it I first thought of a mirror :)
