DIY Holiday Throw Blankets

Orly shows you how to make these festive blankets without any necessary sewing.


  • Polar Fleece Fabric (at least 60” wide)
  • Scissors
  • Fabric Paint
  • Stencils
  • Sponge
  • Ribbon (Optional)


1. Buy a piece of polar fleece fabric at least 60 inches wide.

2. Cut all sides of fabric to be straight/remove any edge that is not your polar fleece fabric.

3. Cut small strips into one side of the fabric.
Tip: Plaid fabric is easier to work with because the lines are like a built in ruler that you can follow.

4. Repeat this on the opposite side.

5. Use a stencil to customize it into a holiday blanket.

6. Apply fabric paint with a sponge because it will allow paint to sit on fibers.

7. Allow paint to dry and fold with stencil on the outside.

8. Tie a ribbon around it and present as gift.
