Christmas Chair Covers
There’s many different types of decorations from Santa hat chair covers to Christmas chair wreaths that easily attach with clips.

Have a bit more time than money? Homemade ornament ides are for you and (hopefully) your sewing machine.
Santa Hats For Your DIY Christmas Chair Decorations
A elegant look will be obtained with a homemade Santa hat on top of the chair. Since it will not need to be worn on the head, the exact dimensions do not need to be perfect. Making it out of fleece will give the most realistic feel while giving more stretch to fit your chair perfectly. Fur trim pinned to the chair will make all materials reusable later as it will not be worn anyways. Wikihow has multiple ways to create Santa hats and will be asy to adapt as they don’t need to fit as snugly to your chair as they would to your head.
Your craft supplies list is largely optional but may include beautiful ribbons, wreath frame, floral wire, and a hot glue gun. There’s a range of sizes in wreath frames which will make it easy to create any type of wreath imaginable. Using pieces of ribbon and decorations left over from last year, an individualized vision will be created for each chair. Feel free to take artistic license, making it anywhere from front porch level to a chaplet wreath. A length of ribbon will secure it to the back of the chair or pins will secure though the frame.

Always key is to not make this a stressful responsibility but rather a chance to express your holiday artistry.
