Cushions can make a wooden chair more comfortable, but they can also make it harder to sit in the chair if they slide around and shift under body weight. Attaching a cushion to its chair eliminates the problem of sliding around on the cushion, and there are numerous ways to keep a cushion firmly attached to a chair.

  1. 1

    Cut out a piece of latex shelf liner to fit the bottom of your cushion or the seat of the chair.

  2. 2

    Place the shelf liner on the chair or sew it to the bottom of your cushion. The shelf liner creates friction and will stop the cushion from sliding around.

  3. 3

    Cut two to three pieces of thick thread that match the colour or pattern of your cushion. Each piece should be 6 to 7 inches long.

  4. 4

    Fold the thread in half and sew it to the cushion at the crease of the thread.

  5. 5

    Tie the cushion to the rungs of your chair to prevent it from sliding forward or off of the chair.
