The only problem: our beautiful table sits on a wooden floor. Perfect for sweeping up lots of toddler messes, but not so good when that toddler is always pushing his chair around. The floor is starting to get pretty scuffed. So, mommy to the rescue!
Here is how to make some lovely (and easy) 'no-sew' chair leg socks to protect your own floors.
- felt (I only used about 1/4 of a metre to make enough feet protectors for 4 chairs.
- hot glue gun and glue
- measuring tape
Step 2: Cut a piece of felt that is the measurement that you just took by whatever height you want on the protector socks. Mine ended up being 5 inches by 3 inches.
(If you're weary of gluing edges together, you can add 1/4 inch to the felt so that you can glue a tiny overlap instead)
Step 4: Take the tube you just made and trace the bottom circle onto your felt and cut out a circle. You can also trace it directly from the bottom of the chair leg.
Step 7: Repeat for as many chair legs as you need.
Stay tuned for more Tawny Bee Housewares month. I have plenty of things I'm working on during March 2010.
Note: I have set up a Tawny Bee How To Flickr Group. If you try this out, I would love to see your version! Feel free to join and link up some of your great creations using one of my tutorials. :)
