Making a Grave Site Winter Blanket

Learn how to make a blanket to cover for your loved one’s grave site during the cold and winter months.



  1. Take your longest evergreen (Ewe) and begin to weave the stem in and out of the wire. I started at each end and worked my way around.
  2. Finish weaving the first layer of the evergreen (shown above)
  3. Start to layer the second layer of evergreen by weaving in and out on top of the first layer (White Pine). Then layer the third on top of the first and second (Blue Spruce).  Keep in mind that every layer you do, weave it in and out going toward the center of the chicken wire with each layer.
  4. Finish with your smallest evergreen in the center of the wire (Cedar).
