Materials

 

With kids at home this summer, it can also be hard to find the time to update your outdoor style. That’s why I love this easy DIY doormat!

Step 1

Remove the tags from your doormat.

Step 2

Place your letters where you want them on your mat.

Note:

  • The stencils linked in the materials are the exact set I used. If you want the same design, use the capital “W” at the beginning and the capital “E” at the end.

Step 3

Tape a box around your letters with painters tape.

Step 4

Paint a layer of white fabric paint over the entire taped off rectangle with your paint brush.

Tip:

  • Because of the material of the mat you want to be careful around the stencils. Always pull your brush away from the letter stencils.

Step 5

Allow paint layer to dry. While you’re waiting, begin painting your flower. Start with a circle about 3 inches from the bottom right corner of your mat.

Tip:

  • This works best if you apply all of the flower lines and details directly from your paint containers.

Step 6

Next, create your petals. To do this, pick a spot on your circle and sweep away from your circle creating a curved line. Do the same thing again a little further down on the circle to create the second side of the petal. (See picture above for help.)

Step 10

Next, fill in the rest of your petals with green. Allow your flower to dry.

Step 11

While you’re waiting for your flower to dry, paint a second coat of white paint on your rectangle.

Tips:

  • To keep your flower from getting messed up when you do this, gently spin your mat around so that the flower is on the top while you paint the second white coat.
  • You will want to use your brush again on this part.

Step 12

Allow your second coat of white to dry.

While you wait, put a second smaller circle in the center of your flower.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.

    Very fun doormat! Getting one has been on the to do list for sometime. Yours is a great inspiration. Visiting from Merry Monday party.

    • Thank you! I love the pop of color it brings to the porch. I hope you’re inspired to check this off of your to do list!
