I pulled these chairs out of the bin and thought they were so cute.
We made them or someone made them for us but I couldn’t believe they were still together. One day I saw them in the doll house broken apart. Apparently a tornado came through and broke them up (or so that’s the story). No big deal – I can hot glue them together so why not make another one and maybe even a rocker?
For the chair you need 19 clothes pins taken apart. If you want to do a rocker five more pins are needed.
Next start assembling the parts. I started with the back. Hot glue the three pieces together separately and then glue them all together. Now assemble one side of the chair. Hot glue the pieces together. This is how it should look. The picture is easier to follow then trying to explain it.
Repeat the process for the other side of the chair. Make sure you look at the first side so you glue the pieces at the same spot. You don’t want a crooked chair…or at least I don’t think you do.Now it’s time to do the back. Put the two sides of the chair so they are parallel.Take one half of the pin and glue the large end one way and then the opposite for the one below it. It’s easier to start with one side of the chair and then glue the second part after.Now its time for the seat. With the back on it sits well on its own. Do the same thing with the clothes pin by putting one large end on one side and alternate for the back of the seat.
