DIY Ikea Easter Cushion

Hello friends, 

With everything happening in the world, today I wanted to share something to hopefully make everyone smile just a little bit. 

Today I'm sharing a really cute and inexpensive Easter cushion I made, using iron on transfers and an Ikea cushion cover.

The cover I used is the white Gurli cover
IKEA GURLI Cushion cover

I purchased two of these covers a short time ago and absolutely love them. They are cheap, great quality and have a zip so are easy to remove and wash. And now I know they are great for creating seasonal covers too!  In fact, I've already purchased a few more. 

I can't take credit for the design as I based it off another cushion I saw on Pinterest. 

 I used Pages to type out the wording and select the size and style of fonts. Then I found the bunny picture via Google. I printed everything off on white paper first to ensure the sizing was right. 

Then I used t-shirt transfer paper I purchased at Officeworks. It's not cheap, $22 for 5 pages. But the results are worth it.

All you do is reverse the wording and images prior to printing it on the transfer paper.  Then cut it out and position it on the cushion.

Then flip it over.

Iron the paper on for approximately 30-60 seconds. 

Allow it to cool, then peel off the backing paper.

How cute is this?

As I already had the cushion and transfer paper this project didn't cost me anything. Nor did I have to leave the house.

I hope it has helped bring a bit of light into your day in a world of so much uncertainty. 

Take care and try to stay healthy everyone.
