If you are joining me from Ashley’s blog Modern Glam I want to welcome you! Recently a few of my blogging friends suggested that we do a blog hop with a cozy theme and I knew that old blanket was the perfect candidate for this post. I really wanted to add a fun element to it. So today I am here to share with you how I easily transformed a blanket with yarn, to give it a bit of fun and fringe!
Stay with us till the end and you will see what the rest of my friends are up to.
What I used:
- old velour blanket
- One ball of yarn
- a pair of scissors
This was a very easy project to make. All I needed was this yarn which I purchased at Michael’s.
The How to:
I placed the ends of the yarn under the loop…
The yarn was then pulled under and tied to make the tie sturdier.
Of course now that my eyes were wide open to imperfections I noticed that the other end of the blanket also had these “threadbare” spots. Therefore I had to redo the other side too.
The finished blanket ended up being much smaller than the original. But now I had a lovely blanket that was actually nice enough to grace the living room couch and not just hide in the closet.
And those pillows? The pink was from fabric of a dress of mine from the 80’s. And the “peace” pillow was from a gift of my friend Nikki.
Now hop on down and check out all the cozy cool projects that my blogging friends have created. Or go to Kellie’s blog, Gratefully Vintage to see her cozy spaces.
