From the Stanley House - How to Make a Button Stool.

Here is the first official tutorial for 'The Stanley Files' and to celebrate this, I have a very special giveaway to announce tomorrow. 

How to make a Button Stool.

This is a really easy and fun project to do with the kids. Supervision is of course required with the hot glue gun....
 Materials:
4 tooth picks or bamboo skewers
A button
Hot glue gun
Secateurs
Insert your skewer into the button hole. Make a mark with a pencil where the skewer sticks out. Cut all four skewers off at this point with secateurs.
Measure and mark the desired length for your legs and once again, cut off the excess with secateurs.
 Place a dab of hot glue on the end of the skewer.
Insert the leg into the button hole - repeat with the other legs reasonably quickly so that they can dry with complimentary angles.
Et voila.
And now they are ready to use for a little house or, as they are in this photo, a cork castle (made by Hugo - more photos to follow...)
I hope you have lots and lots of fun with these.
Love Kate xxooxx.
