Found a few at the dollar store you couldn’t resist and need an idea to put them to use? 

These are a quick and simple way to recover cushions on old outdoor furniture. Pick a color or pattern that works for you and either stitch new ones or try out the no sew “safety pin upholstery” suggested in the Tightwad Gazette. Between this idea and a cheap can of spray paint, you can easily dress up a yard sale find of faded lawn or patio furniture.
