Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog!
Today's post will feature how to create an easy holiday themed swag for your dining room chairs. As we are only a couple of weeks from Thanksgiving as I write this post, my fabric and ribbon choices reflect that theme. However, you may use this tutorial for any holiday.
You will need:
Large bolt of fabric
Holiday trim of your choice
Thin ornament hooks
Begin by folding the fabric over your chair. It is important to note that this project will only work on chairs with an open back.
The piece of fabric should be only a slight bit wider than the back of your chair. Wrap the fabric around the chair back.
Pleat or fold the other side of the fabric (the back of the chair), shown here. Tie with a thin piece of ribbon.
Use the excess ribbon shown here to thread through the bottom of your pinecone. Tie down and trim away excess.
Next, I pre-made burlap ribbon bows, one for each chair. Thread one side of an ornament hook through your bow, and create a closure by twisting.
Thread the other side of the hook through the thin ribbon you've tied onto the chair. Again, create a closure by twisting. Adjust your bow so it is straight and upright. Voilà! All complete.
You way even add a holiday décor pick such as this.
Simply slide the long end behind your bow like I have done here.
My Thanksgiving table is rustic, so I opted not to iron the linen. You may want to if you prefer a more streamlined look.
Where to find:
Burlap ribbon, Walmart
Thin ribbon, Walmart
Fabric, $12 for a whole bolt at a local thrift (almost always less expensive than other stores)
