Summer is actually in full swing as well as also which means which is actually a perfect time to 1) spruce up your home as well as also 2) do some fun diy crafts! This specific homemade painted doormat will cover both of those bases. Plus, you can easily customize which to fit your own style. We kept this specific DIY painted doormat simple so you don’t have to sweat which – or work up a sweat producing which in this specific heat! So let’s step right on into which!
with this specific project you will need:
- A plain doormat – we got ours at Target for about $6
- Acrylic paint or spray paint
- Sponge paint brush
Painted Flamingo Doormat Instructions:
To begin producing your flamingo doormat, you will first need a stencil. You have a couple options with this specific, you can use our flamingo stencil which we attached as a PDF at the bottom of this specific post, use a store bought stencil, or create your own. If you are using our flamingo stencil simply print out the PDFs as well as also line up the flamingo top with the appropriate bottom (labeled by the PDF name) onto the doormat where you want. The flamingo top as well as also bottom will overlap slightly. Next, using an exacto knife, cut out the flamingo bodies through the paper. You will be discarding the bodies as well as also using the remaining outline as a stencil.
Once you have your stencil ready, tape the underside to the doormat so which doesn’t move while you paint. We went a bit excessive with our tape yet you don’t actually need to tape every inch down, just enough so which doesn’t move while painting.
Here comes the fun part! Pick out your paint colors – we used pink, black, as well as also orange as well as also kept which simple. Use a sponge brush to dab the paint onto the doormat, using the stencil as a guide. Another option is actually to use spray paint; however we wanted multiple colors, so we choose to hand paint which.
Let the paint dry for a couple of hours, as well as also then paint on a second coat. If you spray painted yours, you may not have to do a second coat (unless you want which more opaque). Once finished with the the second coat, let which dry for another couple of hours or overnight.
at This specific point you can lift off the stencil to see your creation! The last step is actually to use a waterproofer/sealant to make sure your doormat can withstand wet as well as also muddy shoes trampling over which. We used Rust-oleum NeverWet Fabric to waterproof our mat for outdoor use!
at this specific point let your guests mingle on into your house!
