I can’t decide which is more fun, dressing up for Halloween, or dressing the house up for Halloween.
I usually like to keep things simple and graphic…like with this doormat.
It’s super simple to make.
All you need is:1 low pile black semi-circle doormat* white fabric paint** thin bristle paintbrush
*I got my doormat from IKEA for $5.
**You can use regular acrylic craft paint, but I think that fabric paint will likely hold up to the elements a little better over time and it doesn’t crack as easily when dry.
You can get really exact with this and measure everything out if you want to. I just eyeballed it. It’s not perfect, but I sort of prefer it that way.
If you smudge the paint, don’t fret! Carefully rub the excess paint away with a damp rag or a baby wipe, while the paint is still wet. Works like a charm!
Let it dry completely and you’re good to go!
I don’t expect it to hold up longer than maybe another Halloween season or two after this one, but the rug is a $5 rug to begin with.
I know it’s totally not a Halloween song, but when I step on the mat, I want to sing that song by No Doubt, “I’m walking in a spider web. So leave a message and I’ll call you back.” ha..throw back…er. Tuesday. ;)
P.S. Paper bats are from MADE!
