Easy garden chairs tutorial

Hello dear readers,

What can be nicer than dreaming of a sunny day, sitting outside in a comfortable chair, surrounded by beautiful flowering plants? Especially when this occurs on a cold, dark and rainy day?

Here is something very easy you can do to cheer you up.  The materials you need are simple, inexpensive and easy to find.

Materials for two chairs:

A small square of natural jute about 40x40 cm, soaked in one third PVA glue and 2 thirds water.
It becomes very stiff when dry.
Glue
Crochet cotton of similar color or thin trimmings. Just crochet plain chains, about 40 cm each. You'll need 2 for a chair.
1 each 4.5x3.5 cm balsa or other 1 cm thick wood.



This is the template I made and used.  You can enlarge or change it at your wish.




It's to be cut diagonally.



After it's cut you glue around it two chains of crochets, beginning from the middle of the bottom.





You glue jute to the piece of wood and than glue it to the prepared structure of the chair.










The sweet little cushions were made by jennifer

Took me longer to write this post than create the chairs.  Hope your like them.

Here is something beautiful I want to share with you. It's a video clip by Viviu Balint who made a fantastic combination of a 1953 dance performed by Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse and Leonard Cohen's song Dance me to the end of love.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A warm welcome to Hairy caveman. Thank you so much for following.

I wish you all a wonderful Sunday and blessings.

  6. Hi Drora! This is funny. I get so mixed up when I go to write a comment on your blog . It used to drive me crazy. So I wrote all the steps on an index card. Anyways, your chair tutorial is super and Jennifer's cushions are lovely A special thank you for this you tube dance and song. This is my very favourite song by Lenard Cohen. Whenever I hear this song, it's like a door opens and I step into another world as I listen to it. I have put it in my favourites as I enjoyed the dancing very much. It went very well with the song! Now I'm supposed to click on the blue square. I had a problem signing out the last time so I hope that I remembered what I had done when I wrote it on my index card.
