  5. Turn chair over, place a felt pad on bottom of leg. Then place your fabric circle on top and hold around the leg. Take a rubber band and wrap around the leg to hold fabric in place.
  6. Repeat step 3 until all chair legs are covered. Rubber bands hold fabric and felt in place, unlike stick on felt pads, they won't fall off.
