Holiday Chair Slips

 Hey everyone,

 Here’s a post I promised on the chair slips in my Christmas Dinning Room.

This project was a little more time consuming than I thought it would be, but I LOVE the way these turned out!

Directions:

Start by cutting your burlap to your desired length. I sewed one side of the burlap for a more finished look.

For a more shabby or country look,  you could leave both sides frayed.  I sewed them up to be fitted to the chair back.  Then used a basic stencil for the numbers. PicMonkey Collage.chair slips

Next, I took ribbon and tied it around the chair in two places.

* Hint:  Craft glue your ribbons on. Mine on slipping off all the time.

To create the back, I took a Christmas …um, what are those things called, accessories? You know, the things on wire with some garland and other Christmas pieces? I bought mine at Walmart. They were a little over a dollar each.

I tied silver ribbon to the chair, and then tied the ribbon around the (we’ll call it a garland piece) garland piece and real greenery. I added real greenery for some bulk.

…and in the end, they looked like this!

Love this bird one.

This turned out to be a great addition to my boring chairs.  I plan on changing things on them through the seasons.

  2. They look lovely, I love all they add to the tablescape! Really pretty simple too. Thanks for the great idea.

  3. I love your burlap chairs! But whoever sits in # 1 and # 4 will have a hard time eating because the centerpiece is really long. Unless you have no one sitting at those end chairs.

    • haha! So true Marie Roxanne! We actually rarely eat here, because we have a nook in the kitchen, but I’ll have to keep that in mind for dinner party purposes! lol

  4. I love them! The back arrangement look as pretty as the front!

  5. beautifully done!!!

    • Thanks so much for the feature Sarah! I’m trying to figure out how to make them work for January!

      Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
