Usually throws and pillows are the only Christmas touches that I add to my everyday chairs but this year I had something else in mind.
I ordered in an inexpensive but nice slip cover and I can't tell you how wrinkled it was. It took a long time to iron it, but was well worth the time. Throwing a damp rag in the dryer with it or steaming it just didn't work....it needed to be ironed.
So, I place the slip cover on the chair where it will be under the cushion, then I safety pin it to the chair so it won't move around..
Now, it's time to put some custom Farmhouse Christmas touches to my newly slip covered chair.
Wrap your cushion just like you do your Christmas presents! I only bought 2 yards of fabric so I didn't have enough to cover the under side of the cushion but that was ok since you can't see that part anyway. Next time I will get 3 yards though.. .
I tucked the Christmas fabric for the back of the chair into the places that the basic slip cover had been tucked into.
It was less than $100 for the slip cover and Christmas fabric so this project was very budget friendly compared to the cost of having the chair recovered.
I had fun trying different pillows and throws on my new Christmas chair.
After Christmas, I will buy 3 yards of fabric and I can quickly and easily give my chair a new look
I have been really antsy to start decorating our home for Christmas this year.......I keep slipping one little thing after another in nearly every day! I think after Halloween though I'm going to jump right in and do some serious decorating!
