The Mister is a big fan of duct tape. In high school and college he actually Duct taped the holes in the floors of his 1983 CJ7 Jeep and his 1973 Beetle. He’s used it for patching up the holes in his ski pants, for the binding on his books, and gave the proud thumbs up as his friend strapped their ski boots around their calves.
So why not put that tape to updating a child’s chair (we use this little baby as a step stool)? Duct tape comes in so many colors and patterns now that the possibilities are seemingly endless.
DIY DUCT TAPE UPCYCLE
The corners were hard and I’m not sure if it was due to my scissors not being super sharp (because I thought they were sharp enough until this project) or if it was just the extra stickiness of Duct tape.
The procedure is simple though- cut slits and fold. Voila.
I’d recommend making your last fold the one on the top side so it folds around to the bottom. I did the opposite but it didn’t really make a difference in the end. No lines or edges are visible with the seat back on the frame.
This was a super easy and fun project that fulfilled my inner decorator.
