If the winter breeze outside attacks you with full force, it is time you beat the wind with some warm clothes. If you are out of stock and do not have sufficiently warm clothes to wear, here are a few ideas you can keep yourself warm in winters. These ideas will not only save your time and money, but will also ensure that you do not catch cold in the chilly breeze outside. Look at some of these DIY ideas and apply them at home.
10. House Slippers
Wearing slippers at all times is essential in winters as cold feet can cause flu and fever. Some of the slippers that we buy from the market are either too thin to keep us warm, or too expensive to afford. Thus, in order to keep yourself warm in the winters, try making your own shoes at home and save your pockets from the burden of buying hefty warm clothes.
Making shoes at home is not a daunting task. You need to cut out soles of your size from soft cardboard paper, or soft but thick cloth. Then choose a warm cloth with your favorite print and cut out two U-shaped pieces of your feet size as in the picture. If you have chosen a cardboard paper for the sole, you need to cover the cardboard with a cloth. Then stick the U-shaped piece on the sole to make a shoe out of it. Adorn your shoes with cute little ribbons and accessories and you are done with your warm and soft shoes for home.
9. Socks From Sweaters
Do you have some old sweaters at home which are of no use now? It is time you do not waste your resources and utilize them in the best possible way. One way to use your old sweater is to create socks out of them. You need to start by cutting out your soles from a cardboard paper and then cover them with a piece of your sweater. Now cut the sleeves of your sweaters so that they fit your legs and the feet. Pull the sleeves down to the sole of your foot, attach the sole you had created from the cardboard and sew the two pieces together to create a new sole for your socks. Your cute little socks are ready to wear.
