If you haven’t gotten a Cricut machine yet, you have been missing out. The Cricut is seriously the ULTIMATE tool for personalizing all things Halloween themed.

You can make this Halloween welcome mat for the outside of your home, but it would even be amazing indoors too. 


Using a Cricut for customizing your DIY doormat, means that you can create any designs you like.

You do make a pumpkin, haunted house, or even a Frankenstein themed doormat. 

Put any word or phrases you like. I love the “Hey, Boo!” because it completely fits my personality, and I just knew it would turn out perfectly.

How Do You Make A Halloween Doormat?

Use your Cricut machine and a few supplies to make a Halloween doormat in no time.

Don’t forget to go to Design Space to create your own design. 

Supplies and Tools Needed: 

  1. Blank Coir Mat
  2. Cricut Chalkboard Vinyl
  3. Transfer Tape 
  4. Masking Tape
  5. Flex SealCricut Standard Grip Mat
  6. Cricut Machine
  7. Weeding Tool
  8. Vinyl Scraper or Brayer

Cricut Chalkboard Vinyl

This time I used chalkboard vinyl, for a couple of reasons.

  • I had it on hand
  • It’s a thicker, more sturdy material, and I wanted to see how it would stick onto the Coir mat.

Using the chalkboard, vinyl turned out awesome. It was terrific to work with, and I am glad I used it.

You can use any adhesive vinyl that you want to, but I think you will be happy with the chalkboard vinyl for this DIY doormat

How Long Does It Take To Make This Halloween Doormat?

I know when you glance at this Halloween doormat, you probably think it takes hours to complete.

Guess what, you can throw this fall doormat together in around 30 minutes.

You will have all sorts of time to do other activities and will be thrilled with the amazing results. 

Will This Doormat Last A While?

Yes, by using Flex Seal, you will get a beautiful finish that lasts.

You don’t have to worry about bringing it indoors if it rains. It’s meant to get a little wet or snowy. I

f it eventually comes off, then you can always go back over it again with updated Cricut vinyl. 

How Do You Keep A Doormat Clean?

Keeping your new Halloween doormat clean is pretty simple. I like to hang it up outside and beat the opposite side of the doormat with a broom. This will know the dust, leaves, or grass particles out of the rug.

Another option is to use a vacuum cleaner to suck up anything that is stuck on it.
