How to Decorate a Stool with Duct Tape

I almost hit the floor when I found this Paul Frank duct tape – learn how to use it to decorate a stool; one of my favorite duct tape crafts ever!

Duct Tape Crafts: How to Decorate a Stool

I absolutely love Paul Frank. I think I made that obvious when I told you about my Paul Frank bathroom and how I made my custom Julius Mod Podge canvas.

So you can imagine my surprise and pleasure when I happened upon this roll of awesomeness in the home improvement section of Target:

Paul Frank Duck Tape

I bought the roll without knowing what I was going to do with it – I love duct tape crafts and knew it wouldn’t be a problem to incorporate into a project.

And I remembered almost right when I got home about the wood stool I had bought to reach the top cabinets in my apartment. I think you know where things go next:

If you want to know how to make a stool just like this one, check out the instructions below. It may be the easiest duct tape craft you ever do. Seriously.

Decorate a Stool

Gather These Supplies

  • Wood stool
  • Paul Frank duct tape
  • Acrylic paint – red, orange, white or coordinating
  • Craft knife
  • Paintbrush

These are the supplies I began with. I love this duct tape so much!


You’ll start by painting the top of the stool with white. Give it several coats.


Next you are going to paint the base. I did both legs in orange and the crossbar piece with a orange-red color. Both perfectly coordinated with my duct tape (matchy matchy wonderful).


This part was a little scary, as I realized that the tape might not match up. But hallelujah, when I put it down on the stool, it went together perfectly! I used about 4 strips of tape, and they smoothed onto the stool top easily.


Smooth the tape down well and cut the edges with a craft knife – cut carefully so that it comes off in a straight line.

There’s nothing else you have to do – your stool is done! Don’t worry – I won’t become one of those people who turns their entire living space into a Paul Frank museum. Probably.
