Displaying little trivets

Board

Need an easy and attractive way to wall display toy sized trivets? Select a good quality framed cork board and hang them using hook push pins! My small trivets vary between 3 1/4″ and 6 3/4″ inches in length, mounted on a 17″ x 23″ oak framed board.

This board has a sturdy universal mounting system which can be hung vertically or horizontally. And, once inserted, the push pins are secure. I used Ubrands cork bulletin board with industrial grade backing and Ubrands hook push pins, purchased at Target.

Many of these can be found in The Collector’s Guide to Trivets & Stands, Kelly & Ellwood, 1990, on pages 248-254. You’ll also find them illustrated and described in the two Politzer books Tuesday’s Children (1977) and Early Tuesday Morning (1986).
