What You Need
- Wooden craft sticks (2.56 inch x 0.37 inch x 0.08 inch)
- Craft paint
- Hot-glue gun
Step 1: Cut Sticks
Cut five craft sticks according to the following measurements:
- 2, cut 0.75 inch from the top and bottom
- 2, cut 1 inch from the top
- 1, cut in half
Step 2: Create Back
Tear a 3-inch piece of tape. Lay the cut craft sticks on tape so the tallest piece is in the center to create the back of the bench. Apply glue to sticks to bond them together and let dry.
Step 3: Make Bench
Tear a 3-inch piece of tape and lay two craft sticks side-by-side on piece of tape to create the bench seat. Apply glue to sticks to bond them together and let dry.
Step 4: Add Legs
Once the glue has dried on the seat, glue on the four 0.75-inch pieces to create the bench legs. Let dry.
Step 5: Join Back and Seat
Join the seat and back of bench together with hot glue. Hold in place while glue dries to ensure back remains straight. Use a fine detail brush to apply craft paint to bench.
Step 6: Make Tabletop
To make the table, begin by cutting 0.25 inch off both ends of a craft stick. Then cut that in half. Lay the pieces side-by-side and glue together to make tabletop. Let dry.
Step 7: Make Legs
Cut a matchstick into sections so that you have four equal-length pieces. Glue one to each corner of tabletop, and let dry completely. Paint the table a color of your choice.
