I found these chairs at DI (thrift) for 5 dollars each!
I love the rustic wood but I can't help thinking how awesome they would look painted a bright color.
The pillows actually aren't pillows at all. They are place mats bought at Tai Pan for 3 dollars each and I stuffed them. They match our tree skirt!
Step one: I took a dollar store stocking that we used last year and traced around it on a double layer of felt.
Step four: I added the trimming and sewed it on to one side of the stocking.
Step five: with the right sides of the fabric facing each other I sewed the stocking together.Step six: I sewed the trimming on the top.
Step eight: I sewed a piece of red ribbon down the center.
I was a little intimidated to start this project, I had high hopes and wasn't sure I could reach them.... I'm so glad I tried. It really feels good to make something completely yourself.
