Dress Your Chairs
Let Christmas guests come in jeans, but dress your chairs to impress. Wrap chairs in cummerbund fashion with a band of burlap as the base and tartan on the top. Tie with wide red grosgrain ribbon, and secure all cloth with an oversize laundry pin. Add a few jaunty pheasant feathers, and use scissors to make inch-wide cuts along the bottom of the burlap for a fringed look.
