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.

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

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.

    What would you suggest for a round pleather footstool/ottoman(see pic). It has good bones and I want to give it new life.

    If you’re putting it over vinyl, spray the vinyl with spray adhesive before putting the fabric on the stool. Otherwise, it will be a shifting, slipping mess.
