Make this super easy doormat and give your entryway a fast makeover. No experience is necessary for this festive project.
Easy DoorMat DIY
- Plain coir doormat
- Spray paint
- 18- to 20-inch star or one from this collection (Optional: Create your own star stencil in the size of your choosing using this star stencil as a template. Just enlarge this onto a photo copy and trace the outline on a piece of cardboard).
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.
