I used to buy tons of those self-adhesive felt pieces to stick on the bottom of chairs, then I finally smartened up when I realized just how easy it would be to make my own DIY chair felt pads, and for FREE at that! How is that possible? Using tiny scraps of felted wool sweaters, of course!

Felted wool, or cooked wool, is perfect for DIY chair felt pads because it is much thicker than regular felt, so it can better withstand the weight of an adult on it.

Get your materials ready, and I promise that you’ll have perfect soft and squishy anti-scratch floor protectors in just 10 seconds or so!

Materials:

  • Scraps of wool sweaters
  • Fabric scissors*
  • Glue gun or other strong glue
  • Permanent marker (I used a Sharpie*)

Before you start, make sure you’ve completely machine felted your wool sweaters according to the directions in this post. This is a great project to use up teeny tiny pieces of leftover felt sweaters. I prefer using felted sweaters because they are eco-friendly and much thicker and softer than their store-bought counterparts, however feel free to use regular wool or acrylic felt for this project if you don’t feel like felting a sweater.

Put the scrap of cooked wool under the leg of the chair and trace around it with the Sharpie*.

2. Cut the shape out inside the traced line with good sharp fabric scissors*, then use that shape as a guide to cut out three more of the same size.

  1. First catch your genuine wool sweater.
    Most knitwear these days is synthetic.

    I do however have a bag full of real wool – most cut up men’s suits. Much much easier to find wool suits than jumpers in op shops in Australia.

    Love your ideas

    • Hi, Helen, and thanks!
      Lucky for me, where I live there are lots and lots of genuine wool sweaters to be found, and I am always very careful to check the fiber content before starting. I once found an abandoned men’s suit on the ground, so I brought it home, gave it a good hot washing with disinfectant, and I’ve used that wool for various projects, too!
      Regarding the personal data checkbox at the bottom, I know it’s annoying and I only added it on recently to comply with GDPR regulations. I need to protect myself because there are some kind of nutty people out there who love making trouble for others, alas!
      Best wishes!
