Painter's Tape
Collection of Paints in Bright Colors
Plain Welcome Mat
Paint Brush
Stencil (optional)


Tape off your pattern on to your welcome mat. Have fun with this part. You can do stripes, herringbone or plaid, you can play with calligraphy or use a stencil to create something more designed.

Paint the area marked, using your brush to shimmy the paint into the fibers (almost like stamping).

Let dry, then remove your tape!
