This is Why I’m Hot: No-Sew DIY Hot Pads

DIY // No-Sew Hot Pads Idea

I’m hoping to bring a little ray of (rainbow) sunshine to your Monday (and your dinner table) with this colorful hot pad DIY. Overall, this project was super easy and also kind of relaxing, in a strange way.

Basically, I just dip dyed upholstery cording in super bright colors, before wrapping it around and around and securing the whole thing with glue. Pretty easy, right? I’m sharing the full tutorial over on Momtastic, if you want to check it out.

Of course, you can completely customize the colors, if you’re looking for something a little more neutral or more ‘fall-like’. But I thought I’d go with bright colors for this one, to bring the fun of summer into fall.

Hi Emily. Yes, you should be able to purchase the cording from a craft store very easily (usually in the upholstery section). And you’ll use glue to stick everything together. Click the link in the post for the full tutorial. Hope that helps.
