Last year I had a vivid vision.
I wanted to create small wreaths to hang on the back of each dining room chair.
The wreaths just couldn’t be found.The local craft stores were scoured, but they weren’t selling the size and kind I envisioned. I checked online. If I could find the size I wanted, I didn’t wanted to pay their price.
I gave up.
The Thanksgiving food was still delicious, despite barren chairs.
This summer I found the wreaths. They were $.25 each at a thrift store and there were just enough for my chairs.
Praise the Lord!
Since some of my fall fabric left, I cut strips to hang the wreaths and sewed the same scalloped decorative stitch along the edges, then unraveled the edges.
I had some of my silk flowers left.
And I created these.
The fabric strips are simple pinned over the chair with vintage brooches.
The long-dreamed vision is a reality. Even my dining room chairs are ready for the holidays.
Maybe one of these days I should start thinking about the food…
Wanna’ see what I did next?
