Thought I would share some tips I have for making grave blankets, I use old evergreen wreaths and cut them in half,shape each one, used white puff paint on the tips of the branches for color, flowers were painted and I used glitter for bling,bulbs the same, everything brought at the flea market and yard sales..I buy angles in any color as they can be sprayed painted, and dusted with glitter...this one sold for $45 I had maybe $4 in it, but a bit of time....Thanks for looking

Wow that is very nice. I love to hear that you found everything at flea markets and yard sales. I can't wait for nice weather so I can shop around with a new eye to repurpose things. So true how a little paint and glitter can totally change the look of something!

I had never seen "grave blankets " until I saw them on here & so many beautiful ones. Do they have a pick or something that keeps them from blowing off? That is just stunning. Out here they clear the graves at least once a week except maybe Christmas time. That 1 would get stolen for sure! TFS

Thank you, I do love using fresh pine, but in some places its not so easy to get.I have always loved the idea that I can up cycle just about anything, the cheaper the better! yes I use a coat hanger throu the bottom of the blanket cut like a u that pushes in the ground. I to can not wait for spring and flea markets and yard sales lol!
