DIY Rugs Into Pillows or Cushions

6 Materials
30 Minutes

I have this old farmhouse bench I love but it's a little hard to sit on. Using rugs from the Target Dollar Spot, I was able to turn them into pillows or cushions.

Here is my bench that is a little rough to sit on for too long.

I bought 4 rugs from the Target Dollar Spot. I couldn't decide between 2 of the patterns/sayings so I bought both so they could be reversible.

I placed 2 of the rugs together with the right sides facing out.

I hot glued 3 of the 4 sides together.

I folded up a fleece blanket and slid it in for the padding inside.

I used self adhesive hook and loop fastener on the last side. This would allow me to take the cover off and wash it if needed.

Here is one completed cushion.

You Could alternatively sew the cushions on 3 sides if you like. I did this with the second cushion as I would be making this the back of the bench. I placed ribbon in 2 spots and sewed those into place so that I could tie this cushion onto the top of the bench.

Here is the second cushion.

I set the first one down on the bench seat, and I tied the other cushion to the back. You can see both rug sayings I picked in this picture.
