Early 20th Century Antique French Carved Cane Seat Side Chairs- a Pair

Christmas decorating ideas often entail a project, and this wonderful pair of early 20th century antique French carved cane seat side chairs are sitting pretty ready to be purchased, primed, and painted in Modern Masters pale gold metallic interior paint.

The wider the ribbon the better, so I like to use a ribbon that is at least 2½” wide.

Determine the placement of where you want the wreath to hang on the door.  Measure the distance from the top of the wreath to the the top of the door.

Double that measurement and add three inches to it.  This is the length in inches to cut the ribbon.

Loop the ribbon under the wreath’s center, bring up the ends to meet, and position over the flat top of the door.

Press a flat head thumbtack into the center of the ribbon to secure.
