YOU WILL NEED:

Bench

Sandpaper

Paintbrush

Primer

Waterproof or oil-based paint

Decorative paper

Waterproof Glue

Varnish

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Sand your bench lightly to remove any old and loose paint or varnish.
  2. Make sure your bench is completely dry before you start painting.
  3. Paint the bench with a coat of primer and leave to dry.
  4. Then give a coat or two of your chosen colour.
  5. Leave to dry.
  6. Cut out large petal/flower shapes from decorative papers – the thinner the paper the better so it will lie almost completely flat against the bench.
  7. Use glue to stick each petal shape in place.
  8. Each petal/flower should be positioned over a few wooden strips on the bench.
  9. Cut where the paper isn’t stuck to any wood and glue the flaps towards the back.
  10. Continue with as many flowers as you like.
  11. Leave to dry.
  12. Give the whole bench a coat of varnish to make the paper designs waterproof.
