Who said practical can't be pretty?

This is a really popular idea among Sugru-ers — we've spotted loads of you creating your own one-of-a-kind door stops for your home, turning a SLAM into a satisfying BOMF!

With Sugru it's this easy!

You can use any number of objects as a door stop, here we've used a nice looking rock as an example.

Step 1 — Roll your Sugru into three small sausages.

Step 2 — Push each piece onto the base of the rock and shape into a small cone.

Step 3 — Squish the Sugru to level it — rub a little soapy water on the surface you are squishing it on first to stop the Sugru sticking.

We have also added another bumper to the front of the rock, to stop it from damaging the door.

In 12-24 hours the Sugru will be set and your home will be a little more peaceful. That's one more problem crossed off your to-do list!

Sugru is hand-mouldable so it's easy to shape, and it sticks to most materials so it will form a strong bond for as long as you want it. Sugru sets into a grippy, flexible silicone rubber and has excellent dampening properties. Plus Sugru is removable, so you can take it off if you ever want to.
