I have had many e-mailing me from Pinterest & Art With Mr. E ...."WHAT IS ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR CHAIRS?!?!" So the best way to answer all of you who've asked...a blog post!!
Felt is the material I use. The pre-cut rectangles of felt sold at Wal-Mart or your local craft store works, but make sure you find a sale!! You can also purchase felt by the yard...and it tends to be a bit of a thicker quality(not sure why...just does?!?!). You will need a good pair of scissors & a thick rubber band.
Cut the felt into thirds.
Fold it over once.
Center on the bottom of your chair leg.
Tie rubber band around felt in the grove where the "foot" of the chair meets the leg of the chair. Hmm..guess that would be its ankle?
Keep looping it...over and over..until you can't loop it anymore.
There ya go! No more tennis balls!!!!
Usually my "footies" will stay on the chairs the whole year long if I've tied them on tight enough. On average I have to replace about 5 individual footies during the school year, but there have been years I've only replaced 1(now that isn't a whole chair worth...just one leg!!!!!) I like them because I can match my color theme for the year with no problem!! They keep your floors looking new...and keep the chair from making horrible sounds! At times a piece of lead or crayon will get caught & mark up your floor. If you can't remove it from the felt...just take it off and flip it inside out...brand new!!!
