- Stiff Paint Brush Or Stippling Brush
- Bland Doormat
- Red, White, and Blue Paint
- Adhesive Vinyl or Freezer Paper
- Clear Paint
- “Hello” stencil
Step 1: Create your “hello” stencil using adhesive vinyl or freezer paper. NOTE: If you have Cricut, you can print out the word “hello” on the adhesive vinyl; however, if you don’t have a Cricut, you can trace the word on a piece of paper and cut it out using scissors.
Step 2: Place your stencil in the desired location of the blank doormat. NOTE: Make sure it’s in place, so it cannot move while you paint.
Step 3: Starting with the red paint, begin stippling the paint onto the top 1/3 of your stencil. NOTE: Use up and down motions to ensure that you create crisp edges.
Step 4: Paint the bottom 1/3 of the stencil with the blue paint.
Step 5: Paint the center of the stencil with the white paint. NOTE: As you get closer to the red and blue paint, make sure to make it appears more transparent so you will have an ombre fade look. You can also overlap the colors if desired.
Step 6: Remove the stencil and let the paint dry for 24 hours, then add a clear coat to the painted area for protection.
Step 7: Place your doormat and enjoy!
