DIY Heart Door Mat

What you will need

  • Heart template (bottom of page)
  • Paint – White Knight water based enamel (Splashes) in flat black.
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard/paper
  • Black marker
  • Small paint brush
  • Computer and printer

What to Do

Copy the heart template to a document and enlarge to the size you have chosen.  Print and cut out your heart template.  Position your heart on your mat.  I have positioned mine in the middle.

Trace around your heart template with your marker.

Using your paint brush you can now start to fill in the heart shape.  This brush was really easy to use and apply the paint.  You may have to use the paint brush in a downwards direction to fill in the spaces.  The paint I have used is for both interior and exterior use.

Fill in the rest of your heart shape with paint and allow your mat to dry.  Mine was dry within an hour.
