"5 Items For Your Winter Home From ONE Thrift Store Sweater!" (Part 2)

2 Materials
20 Minutes
Buy 1 thrift store sweater or repurpose an old sweater of your own to make 5 ideas that are easy and will warm your home during the cold months! There will be 5 separate posts for this one project. Links to all projects will be at the bottom.
Second we are going to make a Door Draft Stopper. Here was the original sweater before we started.
This is what we have left of the sweater after the first project. You’ll need 2 tube socks, and rice to continue. My tube socks came from Dollar Tree, and my rice was from Walmart.
Fill both tube socks with rice.
Flip out one edge of the tube sock. Place hot glue on the turned out edge and press the other tube sock onto the hot glue. Continue all the way around to seal the sock.
This is what it should look like when you’re finished.
Cut your sweater sleeve and part of the chest of the remaining sweater to be on the outside of the socks.
Turn inside out and hot glue any edges that need to complete the tube shape. Turn right side out after glue cools. Slide rice sock pack into the sweater sleeve tube.
Slide rice sock pack into the sweater sleeve tube.
Hot glue the outside of the sweater sleeve ½ way around. Flip the sleeve inside and press together to seal. Repeat to the other side.
Place the door draft stopper in front of your door.

    Does the sweater makes 2 draft stoppers?

    Great way to recycle perfectly good items, but how do you keep the knit from unraveling?
