Transform a plain sisal doormat with some craft paint! (Click through for video tutorial)

If you weren’t able to attend Meet + Make last week you’re in luck—I created a video tutorial to show you how to create this painted doormat with row houses. And don’t worry, you don’t need to be an artist to complete this design. I takes less than 30 minutes to complete and it’s so simple but makes your front porch look so cute. If you make one I’m sure your neighbors will want one too!

Watch the video above to learn how to make this adorable doormat. I’ve also included examples from Meet + Make attendees to inspire you if you want to paint your own design.

Plain sisal doormat
Painters tape
Craft paint in any color; house paint samples work great too
Large brush (I used this one in size 24)
Heart template cut out on adhesive vinyl

Loving the white row houses on this DIY painted doormat.

This video tutorial shows you just how easy it is to create a one of a kind doormat using craft paint and painters tape.

    Ooooh, so cute! I was just thinking that I need to buy a cute doormat since I just moved in my new home about a week ago but that would top my list to about a 100 different things I want to buy. Ahh! I need start being more creative again and stretch my money further… Thank you for your idea, I think I may try this.:)
