How to make a door jammer for baby’s room
All this time we’ve been wedging a cushion between the door so we don’t make a noise with the door latch when we go in and out of the room or so the wind doesn’t slam the door shut. Well that was as much as I was going to have of that so I whipped up a cute little door jammer.
It’s seriously very easy. All you need are two rectangular pieces of fabric, two hair ties and a sewing machine.
- Pin the rectangular fabric together, good side of the material facing out, leaving a gap at each end for the hair tie.
- Cut each hair tie in half, the length you make it will depend on the amount of tension you need to loop around both door handles, some door handles are different (see photo) and the length will determine the tension you need and being able to get it over the door handle.
- Pin the hair tie to each end of the rectangular fabric to keep in place.
- Sew around the entire rectangle, making sure you sew in the hair ties to each end.
- Loop each end of the door jammer over the door handle.
And you’re done! A door jammer that will (hopefully) let the baby continue sleeping!
