DIY Tassel Blanket | ORC Week 3 | Girl's Room Update





It's week 3 of the One Room Challenge and I am beginning to get a little nervous! I am at a bit of a stand still because I am waiting to start on paint and wallpaper..although once those two are out of the way it will be a breeze from then on! If you're new to my posts, I am participating in a six week makeover challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. Over 200 bloggers have linked up and you can see all their week 2 progress HERE.

I haven't done a whole lot to the room yet but I am still making progress by gathering all the items to complete the room. One item I wanted to include, is this crochet blanket that my great grandmother made. She turned 97 this year and I thought it would be special to incorporate her blanket in the room. I wanted to give it a little update so I found a tutorial online HERE from Woman's Day on how to make and add tassels to a blanket.

Here is the blanket my grandmother made. It's a beautiful cream color.


I had a big bag of yarn already so I found a color that would work well with the room. Here is a close-up of the tassel before attaching it to the blanket.





I made enough to go up one side of the blanket and started attaching them by looping through the edge of the blanket and tying a knot.



I love this super easy and cheap way to update an old blanket. I seriously want to add tassels to everything now...but I won't..hehe!



Isn't is super cute now?! I'm obsessed and can't wait to get it on her bed. I'll be back next week with hopefully painting updates and another DIY I am currently working on. Stay tuned!

  3. Yes! Tassels! I'm thinking of adding pompoms to my daughter's duvet cover, but this is so sweet I might steal your idea. Can't wait to see what happens next week.
