This Weekend’s Assignment:

Make a quick, inexpensive floor cushion so you have extra soft seating at home

Floor cushions are like magical little helpers around the house. When not in use, they stack up to create a bohemian vibe or stash away easily to create a more streamlined room. But when the need arises for someone to have an extra place to sit, they can be pulled out quickly to create more seating without complication or heavy lifting.

Though there are plenty of floor cushions available today to purchase, with a little know-how and your favorite materials, you can make floor cushions that are customized to just what you need (and pretty affordable, too). You can follow the how-to above for a step-by-step way to create a pretty simple, stylish floor cushion, or you can find more DIY ideas below.
