Oh, and it also means that the cross breezes make our doors slam shut way too often. Our doors have frosted glass centers, and every time one of them gets blown closed, I brace myself for the sound of broken glass. But last year I decided to use some repurposed items that we already had at home to make a DIY no-scratch rock doorstop for every room!

This project is a good way to use the sleeves of felted wool sweaters. Just cut down the underarm seam to open up the sleeve.

2. Cut inside the marker line.

  1. Bell’idea: sassoloni del genere ne ho anch’io non raccolti al mare ma, in montagna. Devo ricordare di non buttare i maglioni infeltriti nel sacchetto degli stracci!!!

    • No, Marta, non buttare i maglioni infeltriti! Sono un tesoro per creare e io li infeltrisco a posto! (Quelli vecchi che sono già bucati o rovinati o non usati, non quelli buoni!) Ottima idea di cercare i sassi anche in montagna! Fammi sapere come ti funziona! 🙂

    • Haha! A bunch of people said the same thing on Instagram, but I never would’ve even thought of that! Trust me, you don’t want to try to take a bite out of this! LOL!
