DIY Snood Stool

4 Materials
1 Hour

I wanted to add a small natural style stool to my living room but didn’t want to pay over $50.

Kmart had the perfect size stool that I wanted and it was only $16- but unfortunately it was in a grey colour. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make the perfect stool for my space!

Crochet Stool

For this project you'll need:

  • A stool
  • A scarf (or any other form of fabric you like)
  • Large wool needle
  • Twine


While I was still in Kmart I spotted a beautiful natural coloured snood that had a gorgeous fringed edge!

I bought the snood (or infinity scarf) for $12 and decided to hand stitch it onto the stool!

Needle and Twine

I used a large wool needle and twine which was easy to thread through the crotchet fabric on the stool.

Cut and Stitch the Top

Cut and Stitch the Top

Firstly I had to cut a piece off the snood for the top section and hand stitch that on!

Cover the Rest of the Stool

Secondly , I folded the rest of the snood fabric so that the width of the snood matched the width of the stool.

I made sure that the fringe hung over the edge of the base before stitching that piece on!

DIY Stool Makeover

Now I have a small natural looking stool that blends in with the rest of my decor and only cost $28.

      If its lsrge and on a wall, its a return for air circulation. You can make a cover for it. Like a piece of furniture.. just box it out at correct height for you. Make sure yhe front is covered by a mesh or other freely venting material.
