DIY Minimal Beaded Blanket Holder

Short on storage? Display all those favorite blankets as a pretty wall hanging with this fun 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.

Together with your DIY Rag Rug Storage Basket, it’s one of our creative ideas to store your blanket and stay organized this year?

So let’s get beading!

How to Make a DIY Minimal Beaded Blanket Holder

Step 1 — Roll clay into 1.5”-2” balls and poke a hole through the center using the tapestry needle.

Step 2 — Wiggle the needle around a bit as you make the hole so it’s large enough to accommodate the needle and string.

Step 3 — Bake beads at 275 degrees F for 10 minutes per ¼” thickness. Remove from the oven and cool.

Step 4 — Tie a big knot at one end of the string (large enough to keep the beads from sliding right off).

Step 5 — String polymer beads and wood beads onto the cord in a random order.

Step 6 — Once the entire length of the string is covered in beads, tie the two ends together with a triple knot.

Step 7 — Hammer 2 nails into the wall roughly 36” apart.

Step 8 — Hang the nails level with one another for a uniform look or at different heights to create a dynamic asymmetrical look.

Step 9 — Hang the bead loop on the wall and drape it with blankets! 

It’s the perfect place to hang your colorful DIY Watercolor Throw Blanket or your XOXO throw blanket.

    • Hi Audrey! The clay beads are just part of the DIY so it won’t be a full string of wooden beads! However, if you like that look then it would also work with just the wooden beads. Hope this helps !
