Blanket ladders are a great accent piece to any farmhouse decor scheme. The best part is that they are also an easy DIY that you donā€™t need a ton of tools or experience to build. We shared a step-by-step guide that walks you through the supplies needed and every step when making a DIY blanket ladder.

My favorite way to decorate a blanket ladder is adding…you guessed it, blankets! But how you style them can be varied and the weight/color/texture of blankets you use, will change up seasonally. In this post, I am excited to share two different looks for styling your farmhouse blanket ladder for fall.

Blankets tri-folded on the rungs

The first way to style a ladder is doing a tri-fold of your blanket, then draping and tucking on the rungs. You can see in the example above and below how this style has a crisp and uniform look.

As you can see, the thicker the blanket the more full the look.  It’s more of a personal preference, what you may have on hand, etc.

The second way to style your farmhouse blanket ladder for the fall is a more casual look.  This style works better with less thick fabrics.  Simply pinch the middle of the blanket and tuck that into the back of the rung.  Once it’s secured, pull the blanket out to the length you like!

“Pinch and tuck” blankets

You can check out this style in the photo above and below. This method creates a draped look, which is less formal and more organic.
