It’s a common misconception among a worryingly large number of adults that pillows are only used for sleeping or for back relaxation. In fact, there’s hardly a place where a peppery pillow can’t shine with its charm and cozy utility. Pillows can be used to stretch, place things, play around, and various other seemingly irrelevant needs. In this article, you will learn how to make your own outdoor cushions from simple, everyday items that you can easily find in and around your home.
Let’s take a look at the different ways to make DIY pillows.
Old clothes: You can easily make an outdoor cushion out of old clothes. Best of all, you don’t need a specific type of fabric to make it. Collect as many old things as possible, be it socks, scarves, sweaters, etc.
Once you have them, look for hard objects like buttons and sequins and remove them. Gather these clothes into a bundle and fill in the gaps with cotton. Once this makeshift pillow is complete, you can sew a fancy cover for the pillow and voila, you have a brand new decorative item!
Plastic Bags: You’ll be amazed at how handy plastic bags can be when they’re the right shape and size. Just shred the plastic bags left over after shopping and shopping. Place the bundled plastic balls in a pillowcase. If you don’t want to buy one, you can sew them yourself. Then test the comfort of the pillow and fill in the gaps with more balls. Now it can start!
