DIY Fall Doormat

I wanted to add a new doormat for fall to my doorway. It was surprisingly hard to find a plain one. I was envisioning a plain coir doormat, but had trouble finding one and why is a plain one more expensive than a decorated one? I was really pleased when I found this mat at JYSK for $7.99 -cause you know I like a bargin. It’s woven jute, but worked just fine, and was smooth enough to be really easy to work with.

I wanted to add a white leaf pattern to tie in with my all white fall outdoor planter and wreath. I just sketched out an oak leaf and cut it out -saving the background piece to use a stencil. If you’re not great at drawing you could just use clipart for a pattern.

I used some white craft paint and dabbed it on, being careful to hold down the paper and not get it underneath.

I wanted the paint to not be totally uniformed -kind of rustic looking. I used a random pattern, and stencilled a few coming off the side.

I really like how it turned out. I did plan on doing stripes on the other side, but the paint bled through to the back -good thing I did the leaves first. 😉

I really like it, it was easy and inexpensive, and it looks really great with all the other white fall decor. Of course, you could also try it in more traditional fall colours and it would look great too.

  1. Love the white! So different and classic! It goes so well with the color of your front door!

  2. Oh this is fall perfection at its finest! A truly cozy vignette.

    While we don’t have much fall here in Phoenix I would love for you to stop by to see where I did find a bit of fall.

    Have a blessed day!

  3. I LOVE THIS!! Hmmm, I wonder if I can get my hands on a similar rug. Our front porch is currently naked (we just moved in) and it’s bothering me more every day. I wish I could just transport your beautiful porch into mine!! What a great project–thanks!

  4. What a cute idea, it turned out wonderful. Love your whole porch arrangement. I always love decorating with white pumpkins, they are so neat looking!

  5. I love how your project turned out. Your front porch is gorgeous the way your decorated it. I think I’m buying white pumpkins this year. Thanks for the great inspiration. I’m stopping over from the Happy Hour link party. 🙂 Have a great day.

  6. I’m a huge fan of white, so of course this caught my eye! Your porch is lovely.

    I am a fan of white too! Love it.

  8. Just writing you to let you know that I’ve featured this post in my newest post “15 Frugal Fall Decor Ideas.” I know this is an older post, but I absolutely love the doormat and think my readers will as well.

    I hope it’s okay to feature you! If you’d prefer that I didn’t, please let me know and I’ll remove the link ASAP. 🙂

  10. What a lovely front porch! I notice you are Canadian (JYSK!) – Me too! 😉
    You really took that rug to the next level.. this may be a project I’m going to have to take on. 🙂

  11. Yes a fellow Canadian, getting ready for thanksgiving this weekend. 😉 I’d love to see your rug if you give it a try, thanks for stopping by.
