How To Make a DIY Doormat Using Flex Seal with Free SVG

Show Some Love!

I really enjoy making these DIY doormats, with just a few things you have a front porch statement piece.

All you need for a DIY doormat is:

  • a cutting machine
  • masking tape
  • a coir mat (grab it at my favorite craft store using a coupon)
  • a stencil (make your own using vinyl or make a freezer paper stencil)
  • and outdoor acrylic paint or flex seal

To sum it up , these painted doormats are an amazing talking piece for when people enter your home. They even work for covered porches

I used flex seal and a stencil on this door mat, but you can easily make your diy doormat hand painted if you don’t have a Cricut machine, or you can make a stencil. Just cut out your design using a craft knife.

You can not only find these coir mats at the link above, but if you’re lucky you can also find them at Home Depot.

As a result of my generosity, I am super excited you get a free cut file!  I usually use outdoor paint and I have even tried spray paint.

But I knew there had to be an easier way. And yall I found it. And today you will learn what I found.

I have done several doormats since I did this post How To Make A Custom Outdoor Mats Using Your Cricut, and actually learned a few things. 

  1. Make sure you have the right paint brush for stenciling here are the ones I use for my Doormat
  2. Although I did in this one, you don’t have to use the heat press
  3. This kind of goes along with #2, you need to make sure that you are painting or spraying straight up and down
  4. When you are cutting the stencil you want to make sure you have either stencil vinyl or adhesive vinyl

How To Make A Doormat With Flexseal

Firstly, let me state, this is not a quick craft. You will need to take some time, however, it is an entirely satisfying craft.

You need time to cut your stencil with your vinyl cutter, time to get the stencil off the transfer tape (this takes the longest if you don’t know how to use transfer tape check out this post on the Cricut site Transfer Tape: Usage instructions) and also time to paint and to allow it to dry. 

So even though you can spend a few hours and knock out a few at a time you still need at least 24 hours give or take per mat.

DIY doormats make amazing gifts for housewarming gifts. Free SVG files are awesome for creating anything, especially when you’re a beginner.

Also, an added BONUS this free svg cut file can be used with your Cricut Maker and Silhouette Cameo and even some of their older machines.

So, let me tell you about this new technique I used to make this doormat was Flex Seal!

This came out beautifully, using flex seal on this doormat, I got a thicker more vibrant coating and color. It was amazing! I absolutely love how well this looks.

Hi! Your supply list mentions a heat gun or blow dryer, but I didn't see that included in the instructions. Do you apply heat to the stencil after taping it down to seal it to the mat, or do you use it after the Flex Seal dries?

I apologize, that was a typo.

So cool! I can’t wait to try this. How durable are these painted mats? How well do they hold up to shoes going across them?

Very! They last for a very long time. I change mine up with the seasons.
