So this is a super simple, super exciting DIY that I just had to share. It probably only took me 15 minutes and $5 bucks to do, and it still makes me happy every time I come home and look down. I'm going to talk you through creating your own custom, personalized welcome mat, and even better -- going to give you some ideas because truly, the possibilities are endless.
This one's for you. Want to greet your guests like a captain on a ship? Right here. Come from down unda'? Well, g'day to you!
Personally, I like the chill, down to earth ones that make you feel good just looking at 'em. You know, your "'Sup?" or the one I chose to go with, "yo."
So once you know your saying, you get to choose the motif you're going with. I went with a straight black to make sure it would go with the rest of my outdoor decor, but the world is your oyster. I think the Bahama Blue option would work great with beach decor, or the Watermelon Pink for a girl's place.
I chose to free-hand my letters -- with the material of the mat being so dense there wasn't a lot of room for messing up and it was so much faster than trying to print letter, trace them, etc. Just go for it -- make sure you use a relatively small paint brush so the bristles are easily managed. From just paint your letter (probably 2-3 layers for the best results), let it dry overnight and voila!
