Simple {Harvest} Chair Cover

A couple months ago I was at the fruit stand and asked the lady if I could buy a potato sack with out potatoes.  She said no.  I was bummed and almost bought a bunch of potatoes so I could have a bag or two. ;)  Well a while later Mr. Husband was at the same stand and must have used his mad negotiating skills because guess what he came home with?!  What a sweet man.  Even though he totally doesn’t understand why in the world I would want these, he was kind enough to persuade the said fruit stand lady to relinquish one of her precious sacks.
As soon as he brought it home, I knew I loved it, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. Sometimes being paralyzed by possibilities is a problem for me, but as I hung it over the back of the chair, it hit me…
Super Cute Chair Cover!

Here is my Harvest version, but you could totally change it out for  all the seasons.  Or even stencil numbers on for everyday decor.  All I did was slip it over and tie some ribbon around with my foxtails.  I wrapped the ends of the foxtails with jute twine to cover the raw edges.  Done and done. SO easy.
Do you love?  I do!

You might be saying, ‘well that’s great Krista, you have ONE chair cover’.  But, no worries!  I found more online for cheap!  You can find them HERE and you won’t even have to deal with stingy fruit stand ladies.   Although, I am thinking of doing a kind deed  & bringing some to her.  Maybe she does have a shortage. ?
Anyway, I am going to order me some and maybe some cute coffee bags as well.  I have another idea in mind for them that I will share with you soon.
I hope you are enjoying the Thanksgiving season and that maybe this will give you some inspiration for you festive table.
Have a great weekend!
Getting all linky…

  12. I'm thinking of using this idea for my wedding, but my mom is concerned they will be itchy or scratchy. Are they?
