Dress Up Dining Room Chairs for Thanksgiving

Make a nature-inspired plume of twigs and pheasant feathers accented with a big bow to grace each of your dining room chairs for Thanksgiving.

What You'll Need

  • Loosely woven jute ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Crafts-store twigs
  • Pheasant feathers
  • Crafts wire
  • Small pumpkins and gourds, preferably white (optional)
  • White spray paint (if using colored pumpkins and gourds)
  • Hot-glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
  • White dried flowers

How to Make It

  1. Cut a length of loosely woven jute ribbon and tie in a bow around one chair post so the ends hang just above the floor.
  2. Group long and short crafts-store twigs and pheasant feathers so the feathers fan out. Secure to the chair post with crafts wire.
  3. If using colored pumpkins and gourds, spray-paint them white and let dry.
  4. Hot-glue three or four gourds to the twig and feather arrangement to hide the wired top.
  5. Finish by hot-gluing matching white dried flowers around the gourds.
