Me and My Peeps Blog Hop Princess Chair

Make a Princess Chair featuring Me and My Peeps

By now you all know Laura Kelly, but did you know she is the artist behind all those cute stick people decals you see on the backs of cars? Did you know that the Me and My Peeps decals can be used for more than just adding some fun to the back of your car? Laura invited a handful of creative ladies (including me) to a challenge – she sent us some supplies and wanted to see what great ideas we could come up with using the Me and My Peeps decals.

I decided to bling out a doll chair – a little differently this time – and create a special princess seat that we can use again for Camp Doll Diaries next week (that is a clue!!).

Make a Princess Chair featuring Me and My Peeps

Materials I used:

  • A plain doll chair from Little Miss Do-It-Yourself
  • Me and My Peeps princess iron on (by Plaid, available at Joann)
  • Me and My Peeps family decals (by Plaid, available at Joann)
  • Purple spray paint
  • Fun foam
  • Batting
  • Hot glue
  • Me and My Peeps princess fabric (available at Joann)
  • Pink and white polka dot ribbon
  • Laura Kelly Buttons (available at ButtonsGaloreandMore.com)
  • Some bling

I started off by giving the chair a few coats of grape purple paint using spray paint. You could use regular acrylic paint if you want.

I traced the seat of the chair onto some fun foam and then cut the shape to use as the base of my seat cushion.

I added batting for some softness and then wrapped the cushion in princess fabric. I attached it to the chair with hot glue.

I used the ribbon to finish off the edge – at which point I realized my batting was uneven in the cushion – DOH! Note to self for next time…

Now the fun part! I carefully ironed on the Me and My Peeps princess iron on and added color coordinated buttons for fun.

I made sure that the piece of ribbon I used to trim the seat cushion was long enough to go all the way around and tie in the back of the chair. I added a few buttons to finish it off – so cute!

The legs of the chair looked a little boring still so I added the Me and My Peeps decals, some buttons and some self adhesive gems to bring the whole thing together.

Ta-da!! Princess Diamond LOVES her new chair.

This would make a super cute birthday gift, too. A coordinated bag tag made with the Me and My Peeps decal on black card embellished with buttons and scrapbooking goodies makes it extra special.

    How do you keep the iron from ruining the chair?

  4. Char says:

    N – Luckily the iron ons transfer very quickly so I just kept the iron moving and only kept it on there as long as absolutely necessary.

  5. Juliet XD says:
