Skinny sticks (popsicle sticks)
Hot melt glue gun
Procedure: (NOTE: Click thumbnail images to enlarge)
First step will be marking our lengths. Take 2 sticks and mark at 2 1/2” and at 4”. Now mark on one side dots at 2/16” after each line. Connect on an angle.
Cut all angle lines on both sticks. Mark and cut another stick at 1 inch intervals. We will need two more additional 1” lengths from another stick.
Next step you need to glue the 2 1/2” sticks and the 1 1/2” sticks in an x formation. Make sure you glue them opposite of each other.
We now need to connect the two sides. I glued a 1” crossbar under the x and at the very top of chairback.
Now we need to glue our four 1” sticks together with a 5th 1” piece across them to hold them(center it). That will be our seat. Add as many more cross bars across the chair back as you see fit for style. I used only one more.
All that is needed now is to glue the seat on and paint.
