personalised gifts for men

–;?Outdoor chair, $164sofa pillow cases, from The Warehouse.–;?Bolt cutters–;?10m galvanised chain–;?4 x snap clips

Cut the chain in half with the bolt cutters. Have the chair seat handy (the chair is self-assembly so the seat is already detached from the legs).

Take one length of chain and clip a snap clip onto the end.

Feed the clip end around one of the chair’s solid side struts and then clip it back onto the chain, as shown in picture.

Rest the chair on a stool or bench at the height you wish the chair to hang at, and in the spot you wish it to occupy. Take the other end of the clipped-on chain and extend it up to the ceiling joist/tree branch/veranda roof/eaves where you wish to hang it. Attach chain to the anchor point (see below) then let the rest of the chain drop down.

Attach this chain to one of the front struts with another snap clip, using method in step 3. Adjust chain if necessary so chair is hanging at correct angle, then cut off excess chain. Repeat steps 2-4 for other side of chair.

Consult your hardware store about the best hanging hardware to use for your chosen location. If you are hanging the chair indoors it’s important that you hang it from a ceiling joist; use a stud finder to locate one.

Before using the chair, tug firmly on the chains to be sure they are nice and secure. Now place a very heavy object in the chair and check it again. Finally, remove the object and sit in the chair with your feet on the ground to ensure it can take the weight of an adult without strain.

As we start to leave winter behind, we are looking forward to spring and everything bright, warm, and sunny! We love seeing what the Crew is working on each season. Evelyn Walter has this lovely, bright basket that she spruced up for spring with some of our burlap, papers, and Tattered Angels paints. Adding in a few daffodils makes this a piece that can be displayed inside your home or outside! You could also give it as a housewarming gift or to your Easter dinner host or hostess. Those yellow daffodils just make our blue burlap pop!
