I needed more seating in my classroom around my small group table, so I saw where someone made stools out of 5 gallon paint buckets. I tweaked their idea and made my own.
Here is how I made them:
1. I went to Lowes and bought 5 buckets and lids for about $4 per bucket. I then went to Hobby Lobby and bought some foam and fabric (which was all 30% off). I also bought some spray adhesive and some thin pieces of round wood ($1.49).
2. I spray painted my buckets green to match my theme. Then I glued the wood to the foam and wrapped my fabric around them. Then I glued the cushion to the bucket lid. I added a little ribbon to give it a little more cuteness.
