Adding pom poms to your summer blanket is a simple way to add a touch to a regular blanket you may already have lying around the house. The only significant effort you have to make with this is going to the craft store and buying the pom poms to sew on to the ends of the blanket. You can add as many or as little as you would like, but adding pom poms will make your blanket just as fun as Summer!

Create a Summer Blanket with Old T-Shirts

An easy and inexpensive way to make a blanket is to sew together several shirts you own and do not want to wear anymore. When picking your t-shirt, make sure to pick t-shirts that feel comfortable. Since we want a blanket for the Summer, lighter material t-shirts will probably work best for the weather around the summertime. Plus, no one likes to be itchy when trying to sleep or reading on the couch!
