What can you do with some pom-poms, felt yardage, and sequin trim, that can create happy memories for your family for years to come? Wouldn't you like to have some ready-made decorations on hand, to honor birthdays or other important milestones? Have you ever had a guest who suddenly announces that today is her birthday? Wouldn't it be great to whip out some decorations at a moment's notice? So here's the answer to all of these questions: a simple felt slip cover that can turn a regular arm chair into a festive birthday throne!
No tricky calculations necessary, just make a simple pattern by tracing the shape of the back of the chair, and then cut out two identical pieces, which are joined at the top only. You can make some ties on the sides if necessary, and the seat piece needn't be more than a simple square that you can also attach with ties or tuck in, depending on the type of chair you'll be using. As for the pom-poms, I whipped these up with my new pom-pom maker that works like a dream!
So hang a fabric backdrop (even over a door, like I did here!), and some felt garlands or balloons, get out your slip cover, and let the party begin! And by the way, in keeping with the theme, a simple pom-pom as a present topper is just as cute as can be!
