DIY Chair Sashes


Chair sashes are a good way to liven up your chairs if you're having a party or decorating the reception area for a wedding. They can also be used for everyday home decorating. It doesn't take much time to make a chair look elegant using a sash. Any type of material can be used, and the sash can be accented with embellishments, depending on the occasion.

Things You'll Need

  • 3 yards tulle (for each chair)
  • 6-inch to 8-inch-wide satin or organza
  • Cut the material to the length that you need. It takes about 3 yards of material to decorate chairs that have a back width of 17 inches. You can use tulle, organza or satin to make the chair sashes.

  • Wrap the sash around the middle of the chair right around where your back would hit if you were sitting in the chair.

  • Bring each end around to the back of the chair to tie it.

  • Tie a knot. You can either leave it that way with the fabric hanging down, or you can tie a standard bow like you are tying a shoelace.

Tips & Warnings

  • For a different look, tie a bow to the side of the chair.
