Heart Blanket DIY

Heart blanket DIY 1I love this blanket! I'm always looking for new ways to decorate our living room without spending too much. This design is bold, but still cute. You can make one too, here's how…

Heart blanket DIY 21. Supplies: throw blanket (we picked up a simple blanket at Target), Martha Stewart All Surface Paint, paintbrush, scissors, cardboard, and cork. 2. Begin by cutting out various shaped hearts. We made three sizes to create a gradient design. Add corks to the back to make a handle for the stamps. 3. Begin adding layers of paint to the hearts and stamping them onto the blanket.. 4. Continue stamping until you have a pretty pattern! We did a fun pattern of large, medium, and small hearts. Touch up any spots with a paintbrush.

Heart blanket DIY 6When I walked by several hours later, this is what I found! (heart=melted)  Hope you have a lovely day! Elsie

  • Cute blanket! I’m just curious, does the paint make the hearts crusty or hard?

  • this is such an inspiring idea 🙂
    your dog is soo sweeet, love it 🙂

    I love myself a heart pattern on pretty much anything.


  • such a great diy! it’s charming & quirky. my full stamp of approval. and my husband is completely obsessed with that pup! he’s beyond smitten.

    Plus, what a great idea. I think I will need to get creating this for winter in Australia 🙂

  • AWWW thats the cutest photograph! I may have to make myself one of these blankets 🙂

  • OMG, cuteness overload. What a great idea! Adore!

  • This is so sweet! & so is your little puppy! 🙂


  • You are giving me craft-inspiration for EVERY week! I would love to do this~ but does the blanket paint dry and is still soft? or does it feel crisp/scratchy? Can you order Martha Stewart paints online?

  • Ditto…cutest puppy ever!

    Love the blanket too (great job)…but a puppy adds so much!

  • Aww, Dolly is *adorable!* I’m definitely bookmarking this DIY, but might end up replacing hearts with planets. 🙂

  • oh my goodness, my mums birthday is the end of this month so I’ll definitely make her one of these. This is my absolute favorite blog

  • So cute! I love this blanket. I have 3 special blankets, 1 was made when I was a child, 1 was made out of my mum’s clothes after she passed away, and 1 was made out of our wedding fabrics for our bed as a wedding gift! They are all so special to me in different ways! Handmade blankets rock!


  • SUCH a gorgeous DIY, so sweet! And your puppy is absolutely adorable!

  • I love the color of your couch! And I love that your puppy found that cute blanket…ha!


  • Such a cute blanket (and so simple) and such a cute little doggie too!!


  • simple yet awesome! Thanks Elsie! I wanna try this tomorrow 😀


  • awwww such a cute dog and the blunket is just perfect for him!

  • Cute and simple – a nice DIY


  • Q: So will the paint come off when you wash it?
    A: Martha Stewart craft paint can be used on all surfaces, including fabric. I haven’t tested whether handwashing or machine washing works better, but this blanket is something I would probably hand wash anyway! XO!

  • So cute! I think I’ll try a dark throw blanket with gold triangles to match my decor 🙂

  • LOVE that blanket. LOVE that puppy. LOVE that aqua chair!!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!


  • Thats beautiful! what a sweet idea.

  • that is TOO CUTTTEEE! 🙂 your puppy is adorable 🙂

  • It looks great! I’ve been trying to think of a blanket I could somehow make for my room:)


  • With a friend of mine you started a blog where you upload photos of hearts. Hearts that you see in unexpected places in the city, photos of heart shaped things and etc. And now my eyes see everywhere hearts! I love that!
    I am so happy to see that you like this magical shape so much.
    much positive energy, deborah

  • Yep, that blanket is no longer yours. It’s the dogs! I’ve seen that face before on my puppy. She has staked her claim on that blanket. You might as well start making yourself a new one. But she’s darling. How could you ever be mad at that face.
