It's time for another DIY project! Since I received the news of becoming a fourth grade teacher, I have gone from feeling shocked to feeling super excited. I am actually heading to my school building tomorrow to move (once again) my classroom and check out the new space. Don't worry...I will take some pictures to post the adventures of this new 4th grade teacher.
Since I am also obsessed with Pinterest, I recently saw some stools for guided reading tables that I fell in love with instantly. I decided I had to make some of these stools for my new classroom. Since it is my birthday today, I had mom come over and help me put these bad boys together.
- One large roll of foam
- Home Depot Buckets (& lids)
- Staple Gun
- 2 Yards of Fabric of your Choice
Step 1: Trace the tops of the buckets on the foam. Cut the circle pieces out.
Step 2: Cut the fabric big enough to fit over the lid and foam.
Step 3: Staple gun the fabric onto the lid.
Tada! How easy is that?!?!
They are the easiest seats to make for your classroom!! I will say that I am exchanging the orange bucket for another purple. It just doesn't "fit".
I absolutely love the way they turned out and it really wasn't that expensive of a craft! I would say it was about $35.00 for the buckets, fabric, foam, & lids! Not too shabby considering real already made stools can be pretty pricey.
So give it a try!! :)
Until next craft,
