CHAIR TIES

I wanted some chair covers for my kitchen chairs but the backs were odd shaped and I am not real good with details, so I decided I'd just make some ties for the backs of the chairs. I took some burlap and cut it for the size I wanted the back to be. I then monogrammed the G, for our last name, on it and tied it in the back. My kitchen is really country so this fits me. If I wanted to really get festive with the season I could tie a leaf, berries, or whatever from the back. Didn't have to get out my sewing machine....just the monogramming machine.

This is a closer view of the chair tie.

That is a fabulous idea! I have also wanted some chair back covers for my dining room. I saw some in a Paula Deen magazine that were so cute. I am like you - not so good with a detailed project. I like quick and easy and cheap!

Sue. My favorite one yet! I have that same fancy oak chair and love the idea of the simplicity of the burlap and initial.
