After everyone’s feedback I had to post an easy step by step on how to make this diy door mat!

First, materials!

  1. Mat (got it at IKEA for $5!)
  2. Fabric paint (color of your choice)
  3. Xacto knife
  4. Brush
  5. Stencil with the word of your choice
  6. Pins


First, cut the stencil with your xacto knife.



Second, pin your stencil on the area of the mat you wish to paint the word.  This will keep the stencil from not moving while you are painting.


Third, start painting!  I squirt paint inside each letter so it could be easier since it is a rough mat.


Fourth, let it dry for a little while.


Fifth, lift the stencil slowly off the mat and be careful it doesn’t paint any other part of the mat.


Voila!  Beautiful masterpiece.  I am so pleased with how it turned out!  And it is so easy for anyone to make.



Hope you enjoy and challenge yourself to create something beautiful today!

  1. Girl! I love this. My husband and I are moving into a new apt in a couple weeks and this DIY might just have to accompany me there 😉
