I’ve been in search of a new welcome mat for our front door. I haven’t found exactly what I wanted, so I made my own! This turned out to be a simple project and just took a few minutes to complete. Below is the tutorial of how to make your own welcome mat. I made that sign to the left of my door back in February and posted about it here.
First, start with a blank mat. I purchased mine from Home Depot for around $7
I pulled out my Silhouette Cameo and cut “hi” out of some contact paper. I did end up using some tape to make sure that the edges were extra secure. If you want to use something a little bit more substantial. Removable vinyl would also be a good material. Make sure to leave extra stencil on the edges to prevent overspray.
Remove the template and say hi to your new welcome mat!
I imagine I will have to re-paint this at some time in the future, but I can simply put a new template over the current words and paint over it again. The project took me roughly 20 minutes to complete, the longest part was creating the template on the computer and cutting it out. Let me know if you try out this tutorial yourself and what sort of sayings you put on it.
