Make Your Own Wrist Rest
Rice and a sock--that's all you need to make your own wrist rest. If you prefer, you can use other pellet-like fillers, including cherry pits, beanbag filling, or anything else you can get your hands on. If you use rice, however, you can heat the wrist rest or cool it to help your overworked wrists relax.
Pour the Rice Into the Sock
Pour rice into the sock you've chosen (an athletic sock works best).
Tie the Sock
Twist the sock to close it, and make a nice, strong knot. If you’re supercrafty, you can try sewing the sock shut.
Rice Sock Complete
You're done--just slip your creation under your wrist. Feel free to adjust how much rice is inside the sock to make for a firmer or squishier feel. For more projects, see the rest of our DIY Tech Accessories how-to.
