Update a dining or desk chair with a little cut-and-paste construction.

Here's how: Choose a large-scale floral fabric (or use remnants of what you already have). Following directions on the packaging, apply iron-on adhesive sheets to the back of fabric. Cut out favorite design elements (e.g., a big blossom, small leaf) and arrange pieces on chair or slipcover until you find a design you like. Peel paper backing from each piece and iron directly onto chair or slipcover.
