Weighted Blankets DIY Projects You Will Warm Up To

1. DIY Weighted Blanket Tutorial

Make your own weighted blanket and turn it into your next sewing project. For this weighted blanket DIY tutorial, we are going to use poly pellets as blanket filling.

If you are sewing a weighted blanket for kids, make sure to check every now and then for wear and tear. The small poly pellets (as you know) poses choking hazards, especially for small kids.

What are poly pellets? These are small beads with a pebble-like structure used as weighted blanket fillers.

2.  How to Make a Weighted Blanket

If you have trouble sleeping, a weighted blanket can help, indeed. That's because the pressure from the extra weight in the blanket is akin to a warm and comforting embrace.

Grab some flannel or fleece fabric and your sewing machine, then start making this DIY sensory blanket to help get you some sleep.

3. DIY Weighted Blanket, No-Sew

If you're not really fond of sewing, then this DIY weighted blanket, no-sew, is your thing. You only need Ziploc bags and some duct tape—do you get the idea?

We will also use rice fillings for this weighted blanket DIY project. That is why we will use duct tape and Ziploc bags because you don't want any moisture going into the rice.

4. The Weight of the World on Your Shoulders

You will get as excited as I am for this DIY weighted cushion. We included this project since it follows the same idea as a blanket cushion, only small scale.

It should be a good project then, to jumpstart your plans for weighted blankets DIY crafts. We are also using rice for this project, specifically small rice bags which you are going to insert (bag and all) into a cushion case.

5. Weighted Sensory Blanket for Adults

If you want to make a weighted blanket for someone who has some sensory issues, this DIY tutorial will help. You need to follow the tutorial up to the letter, though, and take special note of the measurements.

The weight is different for children and adults. It also differs in adults, depending on your body weight. As such, your arithmetic skills will come into play when spreading the pellets to each section of your blanket.

6. Knotted Weighted Blanket

We are going to take some extra steps or weight for this weighted blanket DIY. This time we are going to use rocks—river rocks, in particular.

This weighted blanket DIY is actually super easy to make because you don't have to sew. You can make a DIY weighted blanket simply by knotting your quilt, then stuffing the blanket up with river rocks!

7. Calming the Senses with Weighted Blankets

Create your own homemade weighted blankets and even let the kids join in the fun of making them. The sewing is the easiest part of these weighted blankets DIY projects, and putting the fillers can be tedious.

Luckily, kids can find this task fun and could take over for you. This should be a perfect project to make with everyone at home this weekend.

8. Weighted Blankets for Kids

Give a swaddling effect by making this DIY weighted blanket for children. This is the perfect weighted blanket for kids since we use fabric as blanket fillings, too.

We are also going to use velcro to close the openings of the case so you can easily take out the fabric filling when washing the weighted blanket.

9. Sensory Weighted Blanket Tutorial

Make a cute weighted blanket with your own choice of fabric and even add some colorful tags. We can't always be there to hug and comfort our kids but we can make a comforting weighted blanket for them.

This cozy flannel weighted blanket project will inspire your own which is bound to be your kid's favorite, for sure.

10. How to Make a Washable Weighted Blanket

Want a blanket you can easily adjust and wash? This homemade adjustable and washable weighted blanket is just the thing. That's because it has all the elements of a sleep-aid and a laundry-friendly blanket.

Although there are 6 pockets across and 10 down, you don't have to fill up all the pockets. You can fill the corner pockets for the weight so you or your darling kid is always tucked while sleeping.

11. Weighted Tie Blanket

We have here another homemade adjustable and washable weighted blanket for kids. It is also a tie weighted blanket so you can adjust once your kid adds up height and gains weight.

You can also easily untie the blanket and add bean bags as needed. Isn't this weighted tie blanket that grows with your kid just amazing?
