Weighted Blanket DIY
I’ve been having some problem sleeping lately and I’m not really sure why that is. I may just be getting overwhelmed with all the craft projects I’ve been working on or maybe excited with what DIY project to do next. So I asked one of my friends and they suggested using a weighted blanket. They say that adding some weight can make you feel calm that will result to better sleep.
I looked it up, for $150 I thought I could make one for far less. So if you also want to get a good night sleep without breaking the bank, try these weighted blanket DIY ideas!
