DIY outdoor Fall welcome mat

This year I wanted to get in the DIY spirit by making my own Fall inspired outdoor welcome mat instead of buying one new. I love the idea of being able to customize it to say whatever I wanted!

I had most of the supplies on hand so this DIY cost next to nothing! Those are my favorite kind!

To start: Gather Diy supplies for outdoor welcome mat

I gathered my supplies together (I have mine linked at the bottom). I needed a mat, black paint, a stencil of my choosing, tape, and a paintbrush.

The process was simpler then I thought. To start, I taped the stencil in place on my mat. After it was secured I added the paint to my dish. I found it easier to blot the paint with my brush onto the stencil.

This made sure to get in between all the nooks and crannies. When finished, I allowed the paint to dry before removing the stencil. And that’s it my friends… it’s that easy! It’s such a great way to make a custom welcome mat say whatever you want it to!
