I just love a good low-cost/no-cost DIY pillow solution to add a little cheer to my day. There are so many great ideas out there to turn unexpected things into pillows and I admit I may be developing a bit of an addiction to these easy crafty tricks. Place mat pillows? I was all over that about two years ago. Walmart flour sack pillows? Yup! There are so many worse things to be addicted to though! OK, it depends on who you ask….
What I have here for you today is a new one that I haven’t seen anywhere yet, and I think it just may be my favorite so far…
These chair cushion things have been catching my eye all Summer at Superstore. The original price was $2.50. Every time I would go over to see what that great fabric was, I would always find these sad little patio chair cushions with a little 3/4 inch piece of foam inside and then just walk away, thinking “Well, I have just no use for that!”
But then…… they went on sale for 94 cents. And I remembered that I’m crafty and brilliant. And even when I’m not there’s a whole world of other bloggers out there who are and who will give me ideas! So I snatched those suckers up lickety-split!
And I cut a little hole in one side and pulled out the lame foam of wimpiness. A little stuffing, some hot glue to seal up the hole and I was done-zo! Or is it spelled dunzo? (Spell-check, you are being absolutely zero help here.)
Now I have a perfect pair of slightly-Summery, but really actually good for any season, snazzy little pillows!
Perfect for this transitional Summer-to-Fall time we’re in now. Summall? Fallmer? Sautumn?
Again, Spell-check, thanks for nothin.
