I wanted a new doormat to welcome guests during autumn. I love a DIY doormat. One of the very first projects I created on this blog was a Personalized Doormat. They’re easy to decorate and a wonderful way to personalize your entryway.
I picked up this natural tan mat from my local hardware store. You can also give a worn out existing mat a facelift using this technique.
First, I spray painted it gold.
After the gold paint dried, I laid down a leaf placemat onto the doormat to act as a stencil. I found it at a party store, but I’ve seen similar placemats/decorations at the dollar store that would work well too. Its intricate cutouts made it perfect for this project.
Lastly, I spray painted over the stencil and mat using red paint I had leftover from my Halloween blob project. Be sure to pull up the stencil while the paint is still drying.
And, there you have it! A stellar way to dress up any entryway.
