Blanket ladders are a super simple DIY decor idea to give your space an extra cozy feel.

Not only are they a unique way to style your throw blankets, blanket ladders are a great way to make use of vertical space for some practical storage which is especially helpful for small spaces.

Note: This ladder is not designed for climbing or step use. Please see the bottom of this page for my full safety disclaimer for all my projects

 THE DESIGN

I wanted a blanket ladder that had a little more character than the expected all-wood ladder, so I used pipe for the rungs to give some added interest and varying texture.

This also turned out to be a little easier to assemble than a full-wood version as the ladder was complete after drilling a few holes and screwing together the pipe and caps.

Hole Sizing

If your drilling is not straight, you might have a hard time getting your pipes to fit through the holes and align correctly. If this happens, you can slowly drill your holes a little wider until your pipe fits flush.

If you accidentally drill your holes too large, you can use Teflon tape wrapped around the pipe or fill the gap around your pipe in with some hot glue for a snug fit. I used the hot glue method on a hole I didn’t get quite straight.

 STYLING IT IN YOUR SPACE

The obvious way to style this piece is to fold and hang your favorite throw blankets of alternating textures and colors for a cozy feel.

If you’re in the market for new blankets already – then pick some new ones that complement each other to enhance the visual element of your blanket ladder.

You can also experiment with monotone colors, an ombre look going from light to dark in one hue, or bright pops of color via color blocking with bright hues.

You also don’t have to stick to just blankets when styling — use the rungs to stack books (leveraged against the wall for balance), hang baskets or planters, or hold other decor elements that make your display feel like home.
