Step 4 – Add the final small piece of Sugru to your saucepan lid for colour coordination and leave to set.

Sugru is ideal for this project because it sticks to surfaces you'll find in your kitchen, like ceramic, steel and wood without the need for drilling. And because Sugru is removable, you can always take your hooks off again if you ever move home or buy new pans.
