Dorothy Did It Draft Door Guard
Has anyone been spared from the wrath of the Polar Vortex this year? If so, I hope you're having a nice time in Hawaii! If you're like us, you've been layering on sweaters and scarves indoors and playing it safe with a minimal amount of skin exposed when taking on the great outdoors.
To help keep us toasty inside and the Polar Vortex out, I whipped up this door draft guard I'm calling my Dorothy Did it Door Draft Guard. I love the way it came together and the playful conversation starter that's worked on friends already. Aside from the eight (8) bags of beans I purchased from my Dollar Store, all the materials came from my scrap fabric and ribbon bins.
Here's what you'll need for your own Dorothy Did it Door Draft Guard:
- 8 - 1 lb. bags of small white beans
- 1/2 yard or less of green burlap, cotton, felt or whatever you have on hand to use as the base of 'grass'. You could also do a floral print, which would be cute like a house border, or even a brown for the 'ground'
- Red felt scrap for ruby slippers
- Black and white striped fabric or white and black fabric that's sewn together to create the Wicked Witch's socks
- Red 1"-2" wide ribbon for ruby slipper toes. I found a sparkly red ribbon that I tied into bows and hand stitched onto the ruby slippers.
- Old nylon panty hose
- Red thread
- Scissors and/or rotary blade
- Stick pins
- Sewing machine
Today is a gift. Let's put a bow on it!
