Estimated read time 2 min read

Quilts are a popular and beloved item for many households. They add a touch of warmth and charm to any room, but they can be difficult to display in an attractive way. Thankfully, there is an easy solution – the DIY blanket ladder. Not only is this project affordable and simple enough for anyone to do, but it also provides a unique way to show off your quilt collection with style.

When making your own blanket ladder, you will need some basic supplies such as wood boards or dowels, saws or other cutting tools, screws or nails, sandpaper, and paint optional. Start by measuring the size of your quilts so you know how wide and long each board will have to be cut. Cut the pieces of wood according to the measurements determined earlier. Sand down any rough edges on each piece before assembling them together using screws or nails. Depending on what type of finish you want for your ladder, you may also want to apply primer/paint. Once everything is assembled securely together, it’s time for decorating! You can use ribbon or twine to wrap around each rung for added visual appeal; alternatively, you could even attach small decorative items such as bells if desired.

Once finished with designing your blanket ladder, hang it up wherever desired using sturdy wall hooks or brackets that are appropriate for supporting its weight when loaded with blankets/quilts. Place one quilt at a time over each rung until done; take care not to overload it too much though as this could cause damage both aesthetically as well as structurally over time! This creative way of displaying quilts gives them their own showcase while adding more character into the space where they live whether that is a living room corner nook or bedroom wall décor area etcetera.

In conclusion with little effort required in terms of material cost & assembly labor DIY blanket ladders provide practicality plus visual aesthetics which make them a great addition to home décor statement pieces!
