Whether you’re marathoning a show on Netflix or curled up with a book, nothing makes things cozier than a blanket. But when it comes time to put them away, they don’t always look great draped over a couch, and mostly, they end up piled in a corner. But there’s a folding hack that can help.

You can fold a blanket to become a throw pillow, and it’s easier than you think.

This hack comes from content creator @organizingbyivonne. In the video, Ivonne shows a plethora of throw blankets shattered along a couch before waving a finger in front of the camera. Then, she picks them up before laying one flat on a surface.

She then rolls it up until it essentially looks like a blanket sausage. Once the blanket is in one roll, she ties it into a knot in the center. Finally, she carefully tucks the ends into the knot creating what looks exactly like a trendy knot-shaped throw pillow.


Here I show you two easy ways to fold your blankets and give a nicer touch to your livingroom. #organizingbyivonne #foldinghacks #foldingclothes #foldingathome #organizesdhome #tipsandtricks #home #stayorganized #cleanwithme #hometips #smallspaces #howtofold organizewithme. #home #homesweethome #getorganized #homehacks #cleaningmotivation #homeorganization #instahome #houston #springtx #thewoodlandstx #galvestontx #mom #organization #momlite #getorganizer #organizedmom #tutorial

Once the pillow is done, Ivonne places it back onto the couch, and it blends in seamlessly with her others. Basically, not only is this hack simple, but it’ll also make your space look neat, organized, and trendy. Plus, you’ll save a fortune on buying throw pillows.
