I’m helping out a beautiful, blushing bride who goes weak in the knees for chair covers. We are working on a tight budget. The cheapest option (renting) would cost $3.00 a chair, $400 to do all the chairs in the reception hall.
We need another option. Have any of you tried to make your own chair covers? What did you do? Do you have any ideas for me.
PS It’s a July wedding and her colors are white and a light smokey green.

Would it be cheaper to buy fabric by the yard and just tie a big bow around the back of the chair?

I’ve referred people to this craft website before. There are two examples on there. They are extremely simple covers (not really covers, but decor, i guess), but I think they’re really elegant and a creative person could seriously dress them up.

Chair sashes are a great cheap alternative to full chair covers!

What type of chairs are at the venue? Are the chairs folding or just standard chairs? If the venue has folding chairs then I have seen a few different ideas that were cute (perhaps they could be motified for regular chairs?): http://www.charmingbows.com I was going to order two of these and make a pattern from them to make myself, my wedding coordinator ordered pillow cases and motified them somehow (there is a tutorial on here)to fit the chair and created a sash for them. Also looking in the classified section there seems to be quite a few brides that have chair covers for sale. Good luck!

When people do the DIY route for chair covers do they usually make them for very chair? If I did and made one for all 100 chairs , I woud think that would take forever? How long did it take you?
