Christmas Chairs

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving and enjoyed their weekend! The hubs and I were very productive this weekend, we got the house all decked out for Christmas (pictures coming soon), and we bought my dream car, a pearl white Ford Edge! I am in LOVE with it and so excited. So I spent most of my weekend driving around in my new car! Luckily I completed this project before the big purchase! I decided to dress up my chairs around the dining table for Christmas! We are having a Tacky sweater party in a couple of weeks and I know this table will be home to most of the delicious treats so I wanted the chairs to be cute and festive!
Here's what I used and it only cost me $5 bucks!!
  • 2 bags of pine cones (from Michaels, could be free if you have some in your yard)
  • Red Velvet Ribbon (already had a huge roll left over)
  • Glue sticks

My mom and I started by cutting the ribbon we used three different length ribbon for each chair. We couldn't decide on a knot we liked, so I decided that we should knot it and then make a bow and glue it onto the knot. So I started by making the 4 bows.


Then we picked out the best looking pine cones and hot glued the ribbon onto or into the top of the pine cone.


Here is all the bows and the ribbon with pine cones on glued to the end of it.


We tied the three ribbons in a knot, looping around the chair and we hot glued the bow onto the knot, to create this look:





Here's a view of our table right now. Aren't the pine cone hangings adorable! I LOVE them! We took the leftover pine cones and put them in my cake stand and added some holly berries to it. I hung the beautiful crystal snowflake from our chandelier. This project was so simple, but it definitely takes two to complete, luckily I had my mom here to help me. This was definitely not a task the hubs would could have accomplished.


Thanks for reading! :)
