How To Craft a Blessed DIY Doormat
I’m so excited about these new DIY Doormats, I may even get to decorating my front porch all proper like. It just does not take much to make a place look a little extra special.
What makes these Doormats so extra extra special? They are DIY. You can make them be exactly what YOU want.
Today I show you how to make your doormat look just the way you would like. Unique. One of a kind. Like no one else on the block.
To start I chose the Blessed stencil. There are sixteen stencil kits to choose from. So many stencils. So little time. I mean seriously. You will want to change these out weekly.
I used a medium sized stencil brush plus outdoor paint I picked up at my local Michaels Store. Of course you will want a plain door mat. And painters tape helps too.
Ready with all my supplies I went to task.
Using painters tape I secured the stencil in place as best I could. The tape does not stick flat to the mat, but it definitely helps to keep the stencil from moving. I highly recommend doing this.
Using a little paint at a time, I ‘daubed’ the paint through the opening of the stencil. This is not a new technique by any means. We paper crafters are always stenciling one thing or another. This is the same process. Don’t be in a hurry. Take your time.
When done it looks a little bit of a hot mess. No worries. This works out beautifully. Trust me.
Pull up the stencil to reveal a beautifully handlettered DIY doormat.
I also used the Boarders Stencil to add detail around the edge of the mat.
What a great hostess gift this would make. Grab a Heidi Swapp DIY Doormat Stencil. A stencil brush and some paint. And make your porch pretty and unique this and any season.
