Spring is here – it is time to open our doors and let fresh air in –  DIY handmade door stoppers will stop any weight of door blowing in the wind. It is fantastic to open our patio doors and let the fresh air in, our temporary door stop of plant pots filled with pebbles have been known to blow over, scattering pebbles everywhere. It’s time to make some sturdy door stops to replace them. 

We have collected our bricks from a family walk on the beach, I love the variance in color and washed look.
