Step 1: Determine your design

Arrange your star or star stencil on the mat. We used a 20-inch star for the project in these pictures. Don’t worry if the edges of the star overlap the edges of the mat, it’ll add to the look!

Step 2: Paint

Hold down the star on the mat and begin spraying the color of your choice. We use Rust-Oleum Midnight Blue in satin finish. The color really pops and it looks amazing once placed in front of a door.

Step 3: Set your doormat 

Once your mat dries, you’ll have a refreshed entryway with a fun, new look. It’s perfect for all patriotic holidays, including the Fourth of July.


Wondering what to do with the painted metal star? Use the blue painted star as a decorative accent on the wall of our patriotic entryway.
