Make your own DIY Welcome Mat using your Cricut and the Free Door Mat SVG file included in today’s post.
MAKE YOUR OWN FUNNY DOORMAT WITH YOUR CRICUT MACHINE!
Totally Free SVG Tuesday
Its the first Tuesday in May, which means today is #totallyfreesvg day! This month we all created designs to make your own welcome mat for your front step. Whether you have a big dog, lots of kids, or want people to leave by 9 you will have your friends, neighbors, and package delivery person laughing at your door.
I had a lot of fun designing welcome mats and had a hard time choosing just one. I loved this design saying “Just so you know there’s a lot of kids in here” because it perfectly sums up my own house. There are 4 boys in my house and we often have a few neighbors, some cousins, and other friends over. This could easily have a sub text saying they are not all mine! But really? You get the point already.

Have you ever made your own DIY door mat? I made one at a craft day with the ladies in my church and it was really fun. I found the hardest part to be getting the stencil cut and applied to your mat.
Tips for making a DIY Welcome Mat
- Cut your stencil using transfer tape, shelf liner, or clear plastic book liner from the dollar store
- use a 12×24 cutting mat to get the design in one piece
- place stencil on the blank doormat and pin down any small detailed spots
- Use a sponge brush and pounce the paint on. Make sure you don’t have too much paint or it will bleed through your stencil. Less is more.
- Peel of the stencil and touch up the paint where needed
- Let the mat dry overnight and spray with minwax spray sealant
