Tis the season to be crafty....

Fa la la la la la la la la!!!

Christmas time= Crafty time! I just love it!

Well the Christmas time craft theory has been, "Surely people will clean out their homes so Goodwill should have some good stuff!" So, my mom and I were on our way to make a Goodwill run. Shopping around the Christmas tree, we saw this ottoman...

It needed some love and for $6.99...I was going to give it all of the love it needed! SOOOOO, with ottoman in tow, we headed to Hobby Lobby (love this place!) and found the perfect fabric! Now this fabric had to match my fabulous red chair so it had to be it was PERFECT! Off to deck the ottoman with bows of fabric...

We started by taking off that tacky ottoman skirt...

Once the skirt was removed, we started folding and stapling...fa la la la la la la la la!

The finished ottoman...

This was so fun and fantastic! No sewing-- just folding and stapling!

So how does it look?

Lula Belle gives it her paw of approval!

Keep calm and creatively yours!


  1. OMG! What a find! I love the finished project. It is amazing what you can do with a little imagination and some fabric!
