Jennifer shows you how to make a DIY door stop using a brick and felt. This door stopper hangs from the handle when not in use. SO smart!
Hi! I’m Jennifer of Brave New Home. I blog about home design, decorating and create lots of fun DIY projects in the process. Today I’m creating a DIY door stop that hangs on the doorknob when not in use.
DIY Door Stopper
For this project you will need a brick as a weight for the doorstop. If your door isn’t too heavy, you could easily use alternative weights, such as uncooked beans.
You will also need a small piece of rug pad (or rubberized shelving liner), felt or some durable fabric, string and a glue gun. If you are good with a sewing machine, I’d suggest sewing in favor of hot gluing your project.
Once the brick was down towards the bottom of the sleeve, I removed the paper. Then, much like wrapping a present, I closed the bottom up using hot glue. Then I hot glued a piece of rug pad for extra traction.
When not in use, the door stopper can hang from the doorknob as decoration.
