Instructions

  1. Cut all the crate pieces and assemble according to directions except for adding two more boards on either side, stacked with no spaces.
  2. The crate optional pieces are a little longer I applied after the crate was assembled and used sandpaper to trim them down and inked all sides. Set the crate aside for now.
  3. Cut 8 wheels and glue together.
  4. Cut pool sticks and glue together.
  5. Take the square basic shape and roll it tight into a round shaft so it will fit into the hole in the wheel, glue it together and slide it into the wheel, it should fit tightly.
  6. Hot glue the smaller end of the pool sticks to both ends of the wheel shaft, make sure they are straight, (prop it up to make it easier.)
  7. Take the 3 rectangle basic shapes and score each one on the 2 ½” side at ½”, 1”, 1 ½”, 2” and glue together, this forms the two legs and a brace between the two pool sticks.
  8. Take the brace piece and glue it between the pool sticks about 2 ¼” down from the larger end with hot glue. (Make sure your crate with cover it you don’t want it to stick out beyond the crate.)
  9. Hot glue the two legs to the pool sticks where you added the brace piece.
  10. Now you can hot glue the crate on top of the frame you just created.
  11. Cut out the rest of the embellishments and decorate, or create your own and have fun!

Design Tips

Brigit - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • I used some stickles on the star piece of the morning glories to give a little sparkle.
  • Hot glue really holds the wheelbarrow together securely, I highly recommend it.
  • For a finished look I cut little squares of pattern paper and glue to the ends of the pool sticks.
  • A piece of burlap adds a little rustic texture to your project.
  • Twine, buttons and flairs are nice easy embellishments that add interest to your project.

This project was so much fun to make and the wood pattern paper really makes it look like a miniature wooden wheelbarrow. Fill it with some flowers, soaps, or any kind of treats for Mother’s Day or a Birthday!

    Brigit, this is amazing! I had to look, and look again, and then read to be sure the wheel barrow was paper crafted!!!

    Hi Brigit,

    I’m putting the wheelbarrow together and have run into a small (very small) issue. Your instructions say that the crate optional pieces are a little longer than the crate boards. Mine are shorter. I cut the boards at 7.410 inches that results in them being a tad bit over 6″ when folded, the optional pieces are 5.805″. I know i can cut them a little longer, which i am in the process of doing, just wanted to let you know.

    Thank you for the awesome project, my sister already has a spot picked out for it.
