One of my favorite crafts to do around the holiday is to make my DIY doormats! It is cheap, easy, and so fun especially with some friends as a little Christmas craft night. So let's get in to the easy step by step process.
Step 1: Buy a Blank Mat
They have blank Coir mats almost everywhere but make sure you get one that is inexpensive to make this project worth it! Because I have seen blank mats for almost $20 and that is way too much for this project. I highly recommend getting a mat from Walmart ($6) or Target
($10.) I have used both of these mats for this process and they work equally as great.
Step 2: Choose Your Stencil
For this project, I chose the Fresh Cut Christmas Trees Stencil but there are so many options to choose from in the Christmas Stencil Collection!
Step 3: Tape Down & Start Painting!
Make sure to ALWAYS tape down your stencil. I also like to spray some spray adhesive on the back of my stencil for extra protection. Next its time to being painting! I use black chalk paint and a stencil brush to fill in my stencil. Make sure to not use too much paint all at once to avoid bleed through. I also use a mix between small circular motions and dabbing motions to apply my paint.
Step 4: Reveal your Beautiful work!
Removing the stencil is always such a great part of every project. I love seeing how wonderful something can be from my own two hands!
Step 5: Style and Enjoy!
I love to layer my doormats; I got this reversible plaid mat from target and it is seriously my favorite thing to pair with my DIY mats!
