Step 1
Iron your cushion cover flat. Gather a selection of buttons and beads to decorate your cushion with and place them on the cushion to get an idea of how you would like it to look. John Lewis has a great selection, or visit for a wide range of beads to choose from.

Using a fine needle, carefully sew on the buttons and beads. Start from the middle of the cushion, working your way to the outside to make sure your cushion looks even all over.
