DIY Painted Doormat – Cute Shoes


Welcome to the Home Décor Craft + DIY Blog Hop! If you are visiting from Lucy of Craftberry Bush, welcome. OMGosh her 3-D Canvas Art is brilliant, all I can say is WOW and I’ve pinned it to my Pinterest DIY board already!

Spring is around the corner and it got me thinking of my first impression area – the front door/entry way. I thought it would be fun to share with you the lovely diy painted doormat ‘cute shoes’ I made this past weekend… the perfect addition to any front door!

This is what you will need to make one for yourself:

  1. Print the ‘cute shoes’ letters onto computer paper. Here is the template to use.
  2. Roughly cut out the type.
  3. Place cut type onto the large poster board paper and trace around the type with a marker.
  4. Using your craft knife, cut around the marker outline you made in step 3. This becomes your stencil.
  5. Lay your stencil on top of the coir doormat. Just hold it firmly in the area that you’re painting.
  6. Dip your spouncer brush in some acrylic paint and ‘pat’ down in a straight up down motion (not sweeping) to cover the area within your stencil. Keep painting until you’ve fully covered your stencil design with paint.
  7. Remove the stencil from the mat and use the small watercolor paint brush to fill in any areas of the design that didn’t get fully covered with paint.
