Dress up your front step with this easy Halloween Doormat.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- packing tape
- adhesive drawer liner
- white spray paint
- green spray paint
- foam brush
- exacto knife
Start by taping off the stripes in equal widths leaving the parts you want white uncovered.
Spray paint in a well ventilated and covered area or better yet outside! I ended up doing 6 coats about 15 minutes apart. Let dry overnight and then remove tape.
Print out 8″ letters in a font you love, one on each page. Tape them onto a sheet of drawer liner that is at least a few inches bigger all around. Using the exacto knife, cut out all of the pieces and discard the black parts but make sure you save the inside holes of the letters!
Remove leftover paper and tape and then stick the stencil on the mat where you want the “boo” to go. Be smarter than me and tape paper or cardboard over the rest of the mat too to protect from overspray, spray paint is sneaky! Use a small foam brush to fill in the orange dot, spray 6 coats of green paint and let dry overnight.
Remove the stencil and outline the letters with a black sharpie. Stand back and admire your finished Halloween doormat, your guests are in for a real treat!
