diy: merry + bright christmas doormat

As the days inch closer to the 25th, it's now or never to finish up my craft projects...so I spent a little nap time crafting yesterday and now I have a super cute Christmas doormat welcoming friends in our home.

The design is completely Kelly's idea...I loved her doormat so much I didn't change a thing about it!

To make your own, you'll need:

doormat {this one is from ikea for about 5 bucks}
craft paint
freezer paper
cutting machine or Xacto knife
hole punch

**I didn't have any vinyl to use as a stencil like the original, so I used freezer paper that I had on hand.  I was worried paint might bleed underneath on the uneven mat material, but it ironed on well enough and turned out just fine. :)

Start by cutting your design out of freezer paper.  I used my Silhouette Cameo...Happy Fox font sized to 470 and for the heart I just used a craft punch.  I used a scrap of freezer paper and punched holes for dots.

Iron the stencils to the mat.

and fill in carefully with paint.

Let the paint dry, peel off the stencils, and enjoy!
