Be Prepared to Get Your Hands Dirty for This DIY Cushion Design

This DIY cushion design by iLovetoCreate is a cute way to leave your mark on home decor; the bicycle design is attached to dozens of subtly colorful balloons, which are actually finger prints.

On a flat surface, the blogger draws the bicycle design onto the blank pillow case with a finer-tipped fabric marker. The design can be free-handed or stenciled; the blogger used a freezer paper stencil. Then comes the really fun part -- color your fingers with the fabric markers or use a fabric stamp pad to press colorful balloons onto the cushion cover.

The DIY is fairly simple and low-budget. All you need are some fabric markers and a blank cushion cover. It also reminds you a little of kindergarten finger-painting. It would be a great project to try with a mother and daughter. The pictorial on the iLovetoCreate blog will walk you through it, step by step.
