Brr! DIY Throw Blankets You Can Make to Stay Warm

Make your own throw blankets.

Keep the cold at bay with these warm and cozy DIY projects for throw blankets.

With Mother Nature threatening to throw another Polar Vortex our way, it’s time to prepare for colder weather. Of course, you could turn up the thermostat or you could put on a sweater and snuggle under a blanket and save some money on your energy bills (not to mention have a positive impact on the global climate change crisis).

And you don’t have to go out and but throw blankets, but instead can make your own (the activity will also warm you up!). Use scrap fabric, repurposed t-shirts, leftover yarn, felted sweaters and more to make comfy and warm throw blankets that you can stash around the house. I find that keeping throw blankets handy makes it a whole lot more likely that my family will actually use them.
