Watermelon Step Stool Craft-
Its time for a bit of craftiness and this fun project will make you dream of summer. It reminds us of hot days, barbecues, picnics and ice cold watermelon. Lets take a big bite out of craftiness with this fun watermelon step stool craft.
I invited my sweet bloggy friend Bonnie from the Pin Junkie, to share her wonderful craftiness with us today. Like her blog title declares she loves pinterest. Bonnie is a bloggy Mother and wife and she used to be a school teacher. She uses pinterest to not only inspire her, but to make wonderful changes in her home. Be sure to stop by her blog for a visit and check out her bathroom and laundry room makeovers!
Woodworking projects have always intimidated me. Thanks to Pinterest, I’ve been inspired to try a few and I don’t feel so intimidated anymore! These are some of the wood projects I’ve done that were inspired by pins on my Pinterest boards.
Today I’m going to show you how I made a super simple and super cute watermelon step stool. It’s really nice when you can make something out of scrap wood too. If you make a mistake, you haven’t ruined a big investment in wood. I made this watermelon step stool out of scrap plywood, but you can use a nicer wood if you choose. Like the projects above, this watermelon step stool is an easy project for beginners.
For this project you will need:
acrylic paint in green, pink, black, and white
I started by drawing the shapes out on paper first. You only need to cut two shapes: one for the riser and one for the step. You’ll need two of each shape.
Then I pre-dilled holes and used wood screws to attach the steps to the risers.
If you’ve never made a woodworking project before, I hope you’ll give it a try!
Thank you so much or sharing this wonderful wood working project with us today Bonnie. You sure make this look easy.
