8 DIY Cushion Covers You can Create this Weekend

With Spring finally here, our thoughts often turn to how we can freshen up our homes for the new season. One of the simplest ways to do this is to swap out the cushions on your sofa or your bed. But spending money on expensive cushions every season isn’t always practical so if you fancy getting a little creative, I’ve rounded up some of my favourite DIY cushion covers!


Yes, those are DIY, can you believe it? Some of these are so beautiful that you’d never know they weren’t purchased in a store for a pretty penny. And in fact, the majority¬†are really simple processes of painting or dying, using products you can get at your local hobby or craft store and all you need is a simple inexpensive (preferably plain) cushion to start with!

So what are you waiting for? All the links to the tutorials are on the bottom of the post and don’t forget to pin it for future reference!

I think my favourite are the blush pink and gold brush stroke ones and the black and white designer inspired ones! Which one is your favourite and are there any you fancy trying this weekend?
