You gathered the materials, ordered the feet, stained them and built to box. Now you need to add the foam. I used the green high density foam because I think my older footstools have gone a bit flat. I’m hoping the higher quality foam will hold up better.
Use spray glue to attach the foam to the wooden box. You need just enough to hold it in place. I used a 3M spay glue for foam because I had it on hand. Just read the labels and get the glue that will work for you.[clear]
- Add the largest 1″ foam piece to the top. Attach with spray glue. You don’t need a large amount of glue on these pieces. The glue will hold them in place until your hooking can hold them in place permanently.
- Next add the smallest one. Attach with spray glue.
- Finally add the medium sized piece. Attach with spray glue.
- Test fit the Soft and Crafty pieces in place.
- Wrap the largest Soft and Crafty across the top and down the sides. Arrange the small pieces so they reach up to meet the largest piece. Make of note of how they are positioned
Remove the foam and replace them as before using the spray glue to hold them in place. Give extra attention to the seams to be sure the Soft and Crafty foam is secure.
