Washi Tape Crafts: Easy Edged Chair

Everyone loves washi tape crafts! In this tutorial, Heidi shows you how to edge a chair with washi and Mod Podge.

Skills Required: Beginner. You’ll be edging on a chair with washi tape, which requires going around curves with straight tape. Just have patiences if you’re new to crafting!

Hello, Heidi from Hands Occupied here! Sometimes I just get bored of certain pieces of furniture. It’s not that they’re bad or dysfunctional, just a bit tired.

A super simple solution I’ve found (and I’ve found it’s also super addictive), is incorporating washi tape with it for a fun, surprise texture or pop of color. Here’s my go-to process for edging a chair with washi tape and Mod Podge!

Washi Tape Chair


  • Mod Podge Matte
  • chair
  • paint brush
  • washi tape


Center washi tape along all edges of your chair, smoothing it into place.


I love the look of this when the washi tape is just wider than the chair’s edge. That lets you see the washi tape’s design from all angles. If your tape is wider than your edge, fold the edges down flush with your chair.


Next, paint a layer of Mod Podge over the outside of all of the tape. Once that dries, your tape will be sealed in, much more so than if you left it all by itself.


That’s it! Easiest Mod Podge furniture makeover ever. And now I want to do this to ALL of my furniture. Hmm…


This is such a fun and unique washi tape craft!
