Raggity Ann and Andy chairs  before
Raggity Ann and Andy chairs  after

A few days ago I showed you the flat sticks from Hobby Lobby.  Above shows  how I cut them into chairs and the next picture is of the finished chairs.    Very simple and easy to paint using acrylic paints.  I used a toothpick for the tiny dots on Ann's dress.   The hair is unraveled red bunka and cut in tiny pieces.  Use tweezers to place on the head after applying glue.

I did not have to use special tools to cut these.  Just a miter saw and sandpaper.  The wood is thin and brittle so score it first with a razor blade to avoid splintering.

This project went fast and one could be done in a evening for a class project at mini club.  These would be perfect in a playhouse or child's room.
