You will need:
- A natural doormat (I used this one)
- Green Acrylic Paint (I used this color and this color and sort of mixed them in areas)
- Paint Brush
- Monstera Stencil (I used this one)
I decided to just go for it! I didn’t have a specific pattern in mind, but I did realize a few minutes into the project that the two smaller stencils didn’t look as good on this open fiber weave. The big Monstera worked perfectly!
I set the stencil on the doormat and held it down with one hand. With my other hand, I pushed the paintbrush (with paint) into the doormat, over and over in a dabbing motion. I did this until I achieved the desired thickness of paint. It’s also important to make sure you captured the outline so you can tell it’s a leaf.
That’s it! Really, it’s so easy. My doormat is adorable and all the neighbors are envious (I can tell :)) I think I know what I’ll be making for Christmas presents.
The doormat has also been sitting in the rain for the past week and has held of very nicely! Thanks for visiting today, I hope you all get a chance to make a Monstera Doormat! I have a feeling I’ll be using the stencil for other projects as well, so stay tuned!
