To add a touch of brightness to the living room this summer, Sugar and Cloth has outlined a DIY project to put together a throw rug for the couch. With pom pom trim, scissors and a bit of glue, you can turn a boring blanket into something with a touch more pizzazz.
The pom poms really do just add a punch of color to an otherwise boring piece of cloth. I wouldn't recommend picking up anything heavy for the blanket section, since this is more of a decoration for the summertime. As stated on Sugar and Cloth, the throw can also be used for other purposes too, such as long flights across the country, picnics in the park or even sleepovers when one doesn't have too much space in their overnight bag.
