As with most crafts, it’s really all about what’s available in your crafts’ store. Luckily, Sukkot falls out near Thanksgiving so most stores are carrying fall-themed products. For this trivet, a little creative thinking can help!


A small wooden board
Leaf Cutouts (I found a whole selection of different shapes, sizes and textured leaves)
White glue (or a glue gun if you’re working with older kids)
Any sealant (I’m liking Mod Podge these days)


1. Lay out your leaf cutouts on the board. Come up with a pattern or layout that you like.

2. Glue the leaves down – allow them to overlap one another. The messiness makes it look fuller.

3. When complete, paint the top with Mod Podge to give the trivet a nice shine and polish.
