DIY Draft Blocker

Fall is here and there’s a chill in the air. If you live in an older house you may have doors that let in the cold. Make this easy draft blocker to keep your home cozy warm.

Difficulty Level




Measure the width of your door and add seven inches. This will be the measurement for your length of fabric. For the width I find nine inches makes a thick enough blocker. If you have an especially wide gap at the bottom of your door you may wish to increase the width.


Cut out your fabric. Sew a hem on both ends. I went with a 1/4” hem.


Sew fabric lengthwise using a 1/4” seam allowance.


Turn right side out. Tie ribbon 3” from the edge to close off one end.


Stuff the tube with stuffing.


Tie the other end 3” down with ribbon.


Put in front of your door and kiss those cold drafts goodbye!
