Doormats are all the rage right now but they can be expensive and you don’t get exactly what you are looking for. I decided to try and create my own. I discovered that it was actually pretty simple and easy to create! I will walk you through the process.
What You Need:
- Black paint
- Paint brush
- Stencil – you can create your own using a silhouette or cricut or you can purchase one on Etsy
- UV-Resistant Clear Acrylic Coating Spray
Step 1: Prep the vinyl for application
Make sure you are patient in this process. You can to remove the paper backing from the stencil so that you can apply it to the doormat
Step 2: Apply the vinyl stencil
Place the stencil in the desired position. You will paint inside the lines once you remove the transfer tape layer
Step 3: Remove the transfer paper layer
Remove the transfer paper layer of the stencil so that you are able to paint within the lines of the stencil. Make sure you press down all of the edges so that the paint doesn’t bleed.
Step 4: Paint the stencil
Make sure you paint in a dabbing motion so that you do not cause the paint to bleed underneath the stencil. Apply a few coats until you get the desired color. You can use a hair dryer to aid in drying time.
Step 6: Spray with a clear protector spray
