First things first, take the measurements of your mat and then look for the design according to its size. If you already have a mat and design, then get its print in size.
Choosing the doormat size ensures that you know about the dimensions of your area that you want to cover with it.
After that, choose the design. For example, if you want to make it for winter or hello winter, then select or personalize your design according to your theme.
Cut stencil with circuit machine
Take freezer paper and make a stencil by using freezer paper. It is a beautiful and inexpensive thing that you can adhere to with plenty of mats. First, place the freezer paper in the circuit machine and ensure that its shiny end is toward the light grip mat.
Place the mat in the machine and load its finishing circut after attaching. Now it's time for cutting. Remove the carpet carefully when the circut machine ends its working.
Coats of acrylic paint
Now the real fun and exciting level begins. Get the stiff bristle brush. Choose the acrylic color and start painting. Dip the brush in the paint and gently move the brush in a vertical motion. Take extra precautions and iron press the stencil before painting. You can also pin the letter to avoid movement.
However, apply coats according to the required shade and let them dry. Paint 2 to 4 coats commonly and remove stencils after they get scorched.
Sealing The Doormat- Last Step
After painting and removing the stencil, ensure to seal the mat for long-term usage. You can seal the doormat sealer. This way, you can prevent it from paint tearing. Using a reliable spray sealer and using it in ventilated areas is a great idea, though.
After sealing your DIY doormat, let it dry for 30 minutes and hang at your desired location.
It is a great idea to welcome winter, spring and to celebrate Christmas by making your front porch as it brightens your front porch and brings happiness.
