Measure, Cut, Glue
- On paper, make a rough estimate of the size of the underside of each chair leg (the inch or so that touches the floor). You can use a measuring tape, or just draw pictures of the outlines. The goal is to get an idea of how much space you need to protect in order to purchase enough felt.
- Go shopping. Everything you need can be purchased at a craft store or large discount store. Buy a felt square, large or medium, in a neutral color--brown or tan for wooden chairs.
- At home, turn over the chairs and, using the marker and the felt, outline the chair edges that must be covered. Make these outlines slightly larger than the edges---they can always be trimmed, but you will have to start over if you make them too small.
- Cut out the felt with scissors. Cut out two pieces for each one needed. The pads will be doubled to make sure the floor is protected.
- Squeeze a couple drops of glue onto the chair ends. Do not perform this step until the felt squares are ready. Stick the first layers of felt to each chair end. Pour a couple drops of glue onto the first layer and affix the second layer.
