How To Fold A Throw Blanket Like A Stylist In 3 Methods
If you are interested in folding a blanket for aesthetic purposes, these tips will help you. We’ve enumerated three methods for you!
The orderly method is the first method of folding a throw blanket like a stylist. Here are the steps to do it:
- Step #1. Fold the throw in thirds for an orderly approach.
- Step #2. Drape it on the corner of the sofa. Tuck it behind the back edge.
After draping it on the corner of the sofa, you can place a throw pillow in front of it. Not in the way that you’re going to cover the whole throw blanket. It would be best if you placed the pillow in a way that complements the blanket.
Flip and flop method
The flip and flop method is the next method and is not as ‘orderly’ as the first one. There are two steps:
- Step #1. Fold it in half vertically.
- Step #2. Flip half of it over your forearm and flop it over the back of the sofa.
Flopping it over the sofa gives it a somewhat careless grace. It’s not as stiff as the orderly method, but it isn’t too messy either.
Flip and toss method
Last but not the least, the flip and toss method. It’s similar to the flip and flop method in that it’s not as ‘orderly’. Here are the steps to accomplish it:
- Step #1. Fold the blanket in half vertically.
- Step #2. Hold the middle, and toss it in place.
Tossing it on the sofa makes it seem like an effortless decoration. You can also put a throw pillow at the end of it to give it structure, a juxtaposition of sorts.
