Re-Purposing Wool Scarves

A few years back I started collecting wool plaid Winter scarves.
I didn't really have any use for them then, but I liked them and knew something would come to me.
And it did!
Have you ever heard of wrapping a kitchen chair with a Winter wool scarf before?
Well I hadn't either, but there was that little white chair all cold and frosty looking, so I just couldn't help myself!

Here's how I did it...
I tied the scarf in a knot in the back of the chair.
Next I added a little greenery, a crocheted star my SIL made for me, and a glittery 'K' for Kim.

You can see in the first photo that I tied a red silk ribbon to the front of the chair, just for a little added charm.

This scarf was for Tim's chair.
I bet you wouldn't have guessed that on your own!
Today is a special day for us.
Thirty three years ago our only daughter was born.
She has been a wonderful gift from God.
Happy Birthday, Emily!
Now, December is a busy month for us.
We have Emily's birthday,
my birthday and my husbands,
and then our wedding anniversary.
Yes, a lot to be thankful for....
And on that note, I would also like to say how thankful I am for all of you!
I'm thankful that even though my life is pretty mundane and uneventful you are kind enough to drop by my little blog and listen to my weekly blathering and say nice things about my simple projects.
You bless my days with your comments.
I most sincerely pray that Gods blessings will be upon each and every one of you!
Merry Christmas

  11. Just goes to show that you should "shop your home". Even better, have your sister or friend do it, because they will see your things with a fresh eye and make suggestions you'd have never thought of on your own.

  12. Aw...Lord love ya, Kimberly. We come here because you are REAL- and warm and lovely. And your projects are cute and sweet. I LOVE this idea. I have a couple of old plaid scarves somewhere that I need to dig out for a chair or two. What a cute idea.

  13. Kimberly, what a beautiful and creative idea!! Your scarves look perfectly pretty tied around the chairs, and being white, they are a wonderful base for the plaid!
