I mean, I've tried photography. Fail.
I don't dress well. At all.
Can't grow a garden to save my life.
We all know that my handyman skills are dire, and that's being generous.
Everyone who is anyone (or at least anyone who is a stay at home Mom in the Mormon community) is good at something homemakery like. Take for example a small case study of my friends. We've got the photographer, the gardner, the fashionista, the crafter, and finally the decorator/crafter/entrepreneur extraordinaire; it kind of begs the question...what am I contributing to the world?
Well that's about to change folks. I present to you my first first do-it-yourself tutorial.
See I noticed the other day that the bottom of my stools were kind of scratching the wood floor. I knew Laurie, Kayla, Meleah, Ralphie, Janssen et. all would be able to solve this type of problem on their own, using their mad homemaking skills. So I figured it out by myself and took pictures along the way, so I could contribute.
Be edified my friends.
Homemade Floor Protecting Mittens
First you will want to gather your needed supplies. I decided to repurpose all of the socks from our mismatched sock bucket.
Now, take the sock and place over the leg of the stool. Like so.
When sock is completely over stool leg...
Get a rubber band. Any kind will do. For this project I chose one of Ivy's hair bands.
(that's sparkly blue nail polish from the Easter Bunny, it looks really gross in this picture and I'd be lying if I said it looked better in real life.) Now, be careful here to not snap the rubber band. I found that doubling the elastic around twice, to make an 'x' pattern was very visually satisfying.
And voila! Now not only have you added to the warmth and loveliness of your home, accented your decor (and the random piles of laundry hanging around), but you've also protected your wood floors. And it didn't cost you a dime.
Go and feel validated in your homemakery my friends. I feel like an official crafty Mormon housewife now. Whew!
