DIY Fall Doormat: turn a plain doormat into a fall doormat with this simple DIY using craft paint and a DIY stencil to add leaves.
I wanted to add a new doormat for fall to my doorway. It was hard to find some thing that was relatively simple and neutral so I need up making my own. It was really simple to put together, and turned out great.

How To Make A Fall Doormat
1. I wanted to add a white leaf pattern to tie in with my all white fall outdoor planter and wreath. To get started I sketched out an oak leaf on to some paper, and cut it out. The background piece become the simple stencil.

I did an oak leaf, but you could do any leaf that you like, or a combination. If you’re not great at drawing you could just use clipart for a pattern.
2. I used some white craft paint and dabbed it on, being careful to hold down the paper and not get it underneath. I didn’t use tape or spray adhesive for this project, I just worked carefully. This method worked really well, and was so simple and non-complicated.
I wanted the paint to not be totally uniformed -kind of rustic looking. So I didn’t worry about the paint being completely even. I used a random pattern for my leaves, and I stencilled a few leaves coming off the side as well.
I really like how it turned out. It’s so simple and pretty for fall. I love the neutral, but you could of course do this in fall colours if you prefer.
Also this method would work for any season, or theme -think snowflakes for winter, flowers for summer.
This DIY fall doormat was easy and inexpensive to make, and it looks really great with all the other white fall decor.
