"A welcome mat says a lot about your home. It's the first thing people see when they walk in or when they visit you," says top NYC event planner Jove Meyer. And as Jove points out, most of us are familiar with the traditional natural-looking rectangular doormat.
You may have also seen those stylish doormats shaped like rainbows, which are sold in home stores and look adorable on social media.
"We can go from this natural look to this beautiful rainbow look with not so much effort," he says.
Keep reading for everything you'll need for the rainbow doormat DIY, plus simple-to-follow steps for making your own.
1. On the backside of the mat, use the compass and pencil to measure and mark the arch of your rainbow.
2. Carefully cut the mat into a rainbow shape using the utility knife.
3. Flip the mat face up and use the tape to create the arches where you don't want any color.
"You want a thicker tape for this, because it's a thicker fabric. A gaffing tape is perfect," Jove says.
4. Brush your desired paint colors between the tape arches to create a rainbow.
"If you're using your welcome mat outside, be sure to use outdoor paint and primer. If you're using it inside, you don't have to do that," Jove adds.
5. Once the paint is dry, gently remove the tape and spray the entire surface with sealer. (Make sure you do so in a well-ventilated area.)
6. Allow the sealer to dry completely.
