DIY Minimal Beaded Blanket Holder

Blankets are out of storage and back with a vengeance at this house! ‘Tis the season to cozy up for movie night with a blanket and warm bev or layer an extra one on your bed for cool nights. I, Erin, needed a spot for extra throws in our bedroom, and since closet space is at a premium in our 1930’s abode, I turned my focus to the walls with this DIY minimal beaded blanket holder.

A combination of wood and polymer clay beads come together as a wall-mounted loop useful for draping blankets in a tight space. Are you in need of some extra soft goods storage this season? Let’s. Get. Beading!

Roll clay into 1.5”-2” balls and poke a hole through the center using the tapestry needle. Wiggle the needle around a bit as you make the hole so it’s large enough to accommodate the needle and string.

Bake beads at 275 degrees F for 10 minutes per ¼” thickness. Remove from oven and cool.

Tie a big knot at one end of the string (large enough to keep the beads from sliding right off). String polymer beads and wood beads onto the cord in a random order.

Once the entire length of the string is covered in beads, tie the two ends together with a triple knot.

Hammer two nails into the wall roughly 36” apart. Hang the nails level with one another for a uniform look or at different heights to create a dynamic asymmetrical look.

Hang the bead loop on the wall and drape with blankets!
