You all know my kitchen opens up to my living room and dining nook (the word room is a bit of a stretch for a 10×10 space), so I try my best to keep my kitchen clean and simple.
However, I love to decorate those beautiful dining stools of mine for the holiday season to add some color, glam and texture.
Why Decorate the BACK of Dining Chairs?
I got asked that question a lot when I first did a tutorial about my DIY blush Christmas chair wreaths last year, and the answer is to add more color and texture to your kitchen or dining space.
Even outside of the holiday season, decorating the back of your dining chairs or stools can help support any other decor you may have going on in the space.
In my case, the wreath helps add a pop of blue amidst all my white walls, and I also incorporated some chinoiserie elements paired with some metallic finishes.
Plus, a wreath adds a pop of something natural. A simple mini boxwood wreath is a good year-round option.
DIY Christmas Wreath for Counter Stools
I suggest keeping the wreaths a bit on the smaller side for a traditional dining chair, but if you have a really wide counter stool like I do feel free to go a bit wider. I doubled-up some 16″ inch wreaths from Dollar Tree for this project.
And I know you’re likely here for the tutorial, which is super duper easy. Seriously, each one of these wreaths took less than 15 minutes to assemble.
Blue & White Christmas Decor
I simply love the bold pop of color they add to my kitchen space, and the majority of the supplies can be found at the dollar store.
The blue velvet poinsettias are from Michael’s and were $4 each on sale, but I can definitely reuse them in future years.
I typically tend to stick to my usual black and white plus pink/gold color combos, but I’m happy to step outside of my comfort zone and get a bit more fun with the colors. Who knew blue could look so good?
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will share or pin it for later. Happy crafting!
