DIY Picnic Table

Hello friends! Today is the last day of week one of Camp Happy Hear! I hope you’re enjoying so far, and I hope you enjoy today’s craft.


“Candy, would you like to go on a picnic with me?” Sparkles asks.

“Where?” Candy asks.


“Um…outside? On the ground?” Sparkles replies. She isn’t sure where else to have a picnic.


“I can’t be expected to sit on the ground!” Candy scoffs. “My pants are too fancy.”

I know what would fix these guys’ problems…a picnic table! We’re going to learn how to make one in today’s post.


Here are your supplies, popsicle sticks, a wooden slab, two chests, and wood glue. I got all the wood pieces from Dollar Tree and I don’t know where the wood glue came from. You could also use tacky glue or hot glue.


You’re going to start by making these sort of ‘x’ shapes. It ended up being kind of difficult and I had to troubleshoot it a bit. But if I made it work, I’m sure you can too!


I made four of these shapes, but I only ended up needing two. So only make two!


I placed some books on top of the sticks to help the glue dry. I waited about thirty minutes.


Okay, now you’re going to glue the shapes to the slab. I used the chests to kind of clamp it in place while the glue dried.


My table was a little uneven…so I had to work with that.


I added some popsicle sticks to the end of the legs to help it even out.


It looks like someone added some graffiti…


Now the girls can have a nice picnic! The chests are the seats.

What did you think? Will you be making a picnic table? If you do, make sure to send a photo to worldofagdollsblog(at)gmail(dot)com.

P.S. Stay tuned for next week! We’ve got a special guest who will be taking over…
