In this blog, I am going to show you how to make a mini Adirondack chair like the one seen in my 800 Popsicle Stick Birdhouse w/ Mini Adirondack Furniture.
First, you are going to need tools and material for the chair.Here is what you are going to need:
- about 10 standard size (1/16 x 3/8 x 4 1/2") popsicle sticks
- saw, knife, or scissors to cut the popsicle sticks
- ruler and/or square to measure and cut square cuts
- super glue or hot glue
- PDF pattern can be downloaded by clicking this picture below:

Cut one popsicle stick in half and use the pattern to make the back legs.
Use the pattern and cut out the front legs, by cutting one piece to length and then cut it in half to make two legs.
Use the pattern and cut the front support and glue it 13/16" from the bottom of both the front legs.
Glue on the back legs and make sure that all the legs lay flat on a flat surface.
Use the pattern and cut out the back supports, which are the same size as the front legs. Use 2 popsicle sticks as spacers from the front legs to the back support and glue it on.
Use the pattern to cut out the back rest pieces using the rounded ends of the popsicle sticks as the tops of the back rest.
Use the pattern to cut out the seat slats, by cutting 2 pieces to length and then cut them in half.
Glue on the back rest, keeping them centered and square with the bottom back support. Then glue on the seat slats, starting with the front and evenly spacing them to the back.
Use the other back support cut in step 5, and glue it 3/4" from the bottom back support to the top of this back support.
Glue on the arm rests onto the front leg and upper back support. The best way to do it, is to eyeball it and get it in the best looking location, leaving room for the arm rest support in the front, which could also be glued on.
And you're done!
You can also apply a finish, paint, or keep it just plain wood.
