If you’re anything like us, you might feel that shopping for a picnic blanket that's as unique as your outfit is not that high of a priority. But consider this: Wouldn’t your sunny-day Instagrams look a lot better against an inspiring (and totally one-of-a-kind) print? Since an outdoor blanket serves as the backdrop for some of your best summer moments, let’s put a little extra consideration into this overlooked essential. We teamed up with Cotton to come up with an easy way to upgrade a simple spread with an eye-catching print. Even better? It's lightweight and easy-to-carry, but still tough enough to handle multiple washes during a season filled with music festivals and outdoor movies. Say goodbye to "blah" blankets with this step-by-step tutorial, and then stay tuned for our next project: cotton hanging planters!
