How to Make a Door Draft Stopper

It get's cold during the winter, and nothing is worse than a drafty room. Create a sewn Door Draft Stopper to keep your space comfortable. This is a simple project that even beginners can try.



  • Sturdy, tightly woven fabric (8” x 41-45”)
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • Yard Stick
  • Filler- sand, rice, dry corn, aquarium gravel, kitty litter (You can mix in aromatic elements such as potpourri or evergreen tips)
  • Funnel



  1. Measure the length of your door frame. Most will be around 41” or 45.”
  2. Cut your fabric into a rectangle of the right width (8”) and length.
  3. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise to form a 4” wide tube with the wrong sides of the fabric facing out.
  4. Sew the length and one end together with a ½” seam allowance. Sew the length and one end again with a ¼” seam allowance. This keeps any filler from escaping.
  5. Turn your tube inside out, using the yardstick to help push it out.
  6. Using the funnel, fill the tube with the filler, leaving 1 inch at the top.
  7. Turn in ½” of the top edge and sew closed. Repeat with another seam ¼” away from the first.
