Simple Doormat Project


First of all, I can’t take credit for coming up with this project. I totally stole the idea from Lisa Leonard’s blog.

I bought this doormat for $6.97 from Walmart:

I printed out lettering for the word “joy” using the font American Typewriter and I printed it onto thicker coverstock paper. Then I used a craft knife to cut out the letters, making a stencil.


Here is the homemade stencil:


I used a foam stencil brush to paint the lettering onto the doormat. I used black acrylic craft paint that I had on hand.


And it’s as simple as that! You could do all kinds of things with this. Use your last name, snowflakes, or any words you want. Totally easy! And cute, right?
