Tennis Racket Chair Swag

Put a preppy touch on your chair backs with swags made from wooden rackets and custom felt letterman's patches. To make these, print letters in two slightly different sizes on 8-1/2 X 11" card stock; cut out the letters for use as stencils; trace the letters to two different colored sheets of felt; place the smaller felt cut-out on top of the larger one; and then fuse them together with hot glue. Next, attach the letter to the center of the racket's strings using adhesive gum, and then tie the racket to the chair back.
