I’d make sure you wash them with some dawn dish soap first, they are dirty and sometimes lightly grease to keep them from rusting.

1. I would block off the aisle with ribbon so all the guests have to enter from the side.

2. I would sew some little loops on the sides of the blankets. You can use hem tape or twill tape, then hold them in place with tent pegs.

fiestamurga:  You might consider using a light poundage fishing line to sew them on with, it’s cheap and would go thru that packet fine but it would also be strong enough to hold on the washers where I don’t think regular sewing thread would work. I’d take the fishing line and the blanket to the fabric store and let the people there find you the best needle to use.

I thought of golf tees as a possible method, but tent pegs are a good idea too!

fiestamurga:  If you want to use the washers, you could use dental floss, easier than fishing line, and strong.
