I just spent some time today upcycling old clothes to fill in drafty gaps along my front door. This may be a page from the ultimate cheapskate, but I’m not a big fan of being cold and wasting energy. I seriously was tacking wool strips to my door frame. It actually doesn’t look as bad as it sounds because a.) no one looks at your door frame and b.) you can only see it when the door is open.
Of course I also used my favorite tool, hot glue. Even though we have a door snake (reused an old pair of pants) there was a lot of air coming from under the door. I figured that there would be too much wear and tear if I added a strip of fabric to the door threshold, so I instead hot glued fabric to the bottom of the door. Totally out of sight. The hot glue works well with absorbent materials such as knits and fleece.
