I wanted to get a colorful mexican serape blanket ever since I moved to our new apartment a few months back.

Just in case you have never seen them before, mexican serapes are basically long blankets, kind of like a shawl, with interesting patterns and bright color combinations.

You have no idea how excited I was when Del Mex sent me these gorgeous serapes so I could try them in my home.

At first I wanted to use them as sofa covers, but once I got my hands on them I discovered I could use them for so many other things. I tried a few ideas at home and I have to say, I love my space transformation!

3 Ideas to Color your Home with a Mexican Serape Blanket:

1. Use a serape as sofa cover.

With my baby Jax and my dog Kyra at home, keeping the sofa clean has become a challenge. So I started looking for a pretty sofa cover and haven’t had much luck. They are normally boring solid colors and I was looking for something extra colorful.

I saw a serape blanket on Pinterest the other day and I knew that they would be great sofa covers. The serape blanket I got was a big one (measures: 82″ by 60″) and it covered my three seat sofa perfectly.

2. Use a serape as Wall Art. Serapes have beautiful patterns and bright colors, so why not use them as wall art to cover your walls and give a colorful – fun look to your space?

I folded my big serape and hung it on the wall using a pair of nails.

This is an inexpensive way to add color to your walls and a great solution  for renters who can’t paint their walls but feel they need to add more color in their homes.

3. Use as Serape as Bed Scarf. Serapes are great to be used as decorative bed scarves. I folded mine and just threw it over my comforter. This will definitely make me feel happy each morning.

    Oh, these are so perfect to add color to our home. These blankets are affordable also. Thank you for introducing this brand to us.

    The new(er) acrylic serapes can be used as tablecloths (they’re machine washable & dryable, so why not?). Perfect with plain tableware & a menu of South-of-the-Border foods! I hang antique ones on my walls, though (using Velcro), to protect them.
