DIY Copper Ladder - Click for tutorial!Winter means time to cuddle up on the couch with your favorite show and your coziest blanket! We love soft, cuddly throw blankets in our homes, but we pretty much hate when they end up on the floor or messily tossed on the couch. This DIY copper ladder is literally the cutest way to hang up your cozy blankets this season, and better yet, it's under $100, super easy to make and super cute!

-(6) 20" pieces of 3/4" copper pipe
-(14) 8" pieces of 3/4" copper pipe
-(12) 3/4" copper pressure tees
-(4) 3/4" copper tube caps

DIY Copper Ladder - Click for tutorial!  First, connect your copper tees to the 20" pieces of copper. These will act as the "steps" of your ladder. You can reinforce with super glue or epoxy if your joints aren't nice and tight. No one wants their ladder falling apart. Most of our joints were super tight, so this wasn't necessary on all joints.

If you'd like, you could even secure it to the wall with hooks. It's very sturdy, but if you're afraid your kids or pets (or you! ha!) will knock it over, feel free to hook it to the wall.

Next to the fireplace is the perfect place to cuddle up with a blanket and a book when it's cold outside. Copper is such a fun material to work with and the possibilities of building with it are truly endless. By the way, do you guys have any good book recommendations? I need some suggestions! -Mallory & Savannah
