  • Step 1

    Using a paintbrush, coat the side of the apple box to be decorated with decoupage glue. Allow to dry.

  • Step 2

    Using the templates, cut out 3 apple lefts, 2 apple rights, 1 apple bitten, 6 apple leafs, and 3 apple stem pieces from any papers you choose.

  • Step 3

    Measure the box horizontally to find the center point. With the point as your guide, apply the center apple piece and brush with decoupage glue. Apply and brush the remaining paper pieces. Allow to dry.

  • Step 4

    Apply a final coat of decoupage glue all over the entire surface. Allow to dry completely. Overnight is recommended.

  • Step 5

    To protect the stool, coat the entire box with polyurethane. Let dry for 2 hours. Repeat.

  • Step 6

    Step on it! It’s sturdy enough for the whole family to enjoy. Hello, lost teapot on top shelf!
