First, let me show you just how beautiful this blanket is! You can go with fleece, plush fleece, or the woven throws. I'm a sucker for the woven throws, so that is what I chose. I chose the 60x80 size because I wanted it to be a warm blanket we would actually use as a way to keep warm while watching Christmas movies together.
Even though I knew I wanted to also display it while it wasn't being used for giving warmth, I didn't think about just how large that size was—it takes up my entire couch! Still, it's big and beautiful and I love it, even though I don't have a blank wall in the whole house that is big enough to show the whole thing!
I knew I wanted to do a curtain rod display on the wall, but I did not want to be drilling holes in my wall or have a permanent curtain rod there. I ruminated on that a bit, and I came up with a really simple solution using the velcro Command strips for picture hanging.
A curtain rod
4 velcro Command strips
Wide burlap ribbon (I used 2.5 inches wide)
You will need to do a little bit of sewing, but I promise it's super easy.
1. Cut two pieces of burlap ribbon approximately 12 inches long each. Fold in half, and sew a line about one inch from the fold. I left the threads hanging on the above image so that you can see what that should look like.
2. Take the adhesive strip off of a velcro Command strip and sew it above the loop you just created. I just sewed one line straight down the middle of the strip.
4. Attach the other velcro strip to both of your burlap hangers, and attach them to the wall where you want to hang your curtain rod. Make sure you have measured how wide the rod needs to be, and hang the burlap strips a little bit narrower than that.
6. Finally, make some ribbons out of your burlap ribbon and hot glue them to the outside of the ribbon that is attached to the wall.
I wasn't sure at first how strong the velcro would be, but I wasn't too worried since I've taken to using those strips to hang all my big picture frames, too. It has held wonderfully!
