I made my kids chair backers for Halloween last year and they absolutely loved the thrill of finding treats inside each morning. Carrie from Simply Home shares how she created these adorable felt chair backers for Valentine’s Day with a few basic supplies. While the detail work may be a bit time consuming, you can save some serious dough by making these yourself.
