How to Make a Denim Door Draft Blocker

Stitch the legs of one pair of old jeans together and stuffed loosely with other cast-off clothing. You can use stuffing, too, of course, but old clothes or rags are a more frugal solution. Fabric is also a little heavier than stuffing, so the door draft blocker stays in place better, too.

And that’s all you have to do!

It keeps the cold air out, stays in place, and doesn’t show dirt.
