Necessity is the Mother of Invention
I believe it was Plato who said “necessity is the Mother of invention” .This “craft” post is a perfect example of that. I use the word craft loosely as this is beyond simple. I use a glue gun , therefor it is crafty, giggle.
I have a health goal of 10,000 steps a day ( I usually only reach about 7500) I wear a pedometer every day. What I should say is, I lose a pedometer almost every day. I have purchased numerous pedometers. I only buy the inexpensive ones now . They were always sliding off and I was loosing them all of the time. I checked the sporting good shops and couldn’t find a pedometer with a better grip on the clip. That brings me to today’s bit of craftiness.
What You need
Old rubber glove
Hot glue gun
Lets Make It!
Cut two squares from the rubber glove palm area.
Measure the grip of your pedometer and draw a shape matching the pedometer grip on a piece of paper and cut it out. Mine was oval.Place the cut shape onto your rubber glove and cut out the rubber glove to match.
Place a few dollops of hot glue onto your pedometer clip and place the rubber glove shape onto the glue on the grip. Do both the top and the bottom. Do not glue directly onto the rubber glove piece ( it will melt). Trim any excess and you are done. Now when you clip it on it won’t slip off.
I love reusing, re-purposing and recycling.things. So in addition to the pedometer grip I also made a jar opener too. Great for opening those stubborn jar lids.
Cut your glove up the sides and open it out and flatten. Cut out a circle about four inches in diameter. That’s it you are done! Just put the rubber side onto the jar lid and grasp tightly and taa daa! You can never have to many taa daa moments 🙂
Necessity is the Mother of Invention!
I hope everyone is the US has a lovely Memorial Day weekend.
