Make your own DIY welcome mat with this free “Yay! You’re here” SVG cut file and your Cricut or Silhouette machine. This post may contain affiliate links, which help to support this site at no extra cost to you when you make a purchase through one of our links.
I have a new SVG design to share with you all today, and I’m joining up with some cut file designer friends to bring you a whole collection of designs that you can use to make your own welcome mats! So fun, right?
With the weather warming into spring, I’m thinking more and more about updating and freshening up our outdoor spaces, and a fresh welcome mat is a great way to brighten up the porch!
I’m showing this design on a welcome mat, but I think it would also make a cute door decal or a fun welcome sign.
Make Your Own Stenciled Welcome Mat
First, you will need to gather up just a few supplies to make a DIY stenciled doormat.
DIY Welcome Mat Supplies:
- Blank Doormat
- Stencil Vinyl
- Silhouette, Cricut, or other cutting machine
- Outdoor Acrylic Paint
- Sponge Brush or Small Paint Brush
How to Stencil a DIY Welcome Mat
- First start by cutting the design from adhesive vinyl. (If you are new to crafting with vinyl, be sure to check out my vinyl beginner’s guide.) You can use any adhesive vinyl for this project, but stencil vinyl is a little bit thicker and easier to work with when stenciling.
- After cutting the design from stencil vinyl, remove the positive portions of the design leaving the negative space, which is what you will use as the stencil.
- Next, move the vinyl stencil over to your doormat. This is when using stencil vinyl comes in handy because it’s easier to move over without transfer tape. Transferring the stencil is probably the trickiest part of this project because the vinyl doesn’t stick super well to the textured surface of the mat and it can be difficult to peel off the transfer tape. Once you get the vinyl stencil positioned on your mat, you can use a blow dryer to heat up the stencil a bit and help it stick to the surface.
- Finally, carefully paint inside the stencil making sure to not push the brush and paint under the edge of your stencil. When you have painting the entire design, remove the vinyl stencil, and you are all done!
