Sorry, missed the part about carpet....that will work, or in a baggie and tear the corner off like doing icing on a cake... let it harden for a day, then put the screws back in. You may need to drill a very small pilot hole. You want the glue/sawdust mix to be pretty thick...more of a paste than a liquid...
