A Coir Mat is a doormat made of natural coir fibers. It is a heavy duty mat that is also eco friendly.
There is no need to add color now. Flex seal spray comes in amazing vibrant colors.
I like to use coir door mats because the natural coir fibers are amazing to trap dirt and mud, but it gives great hold to the flex seal.
Knowing what you are doing will cut the time of the craft down by a little, but each mat will still need at least 24 hours.

Flex Seal Colors
Flex seal and flex seal colors is for way more then filling cracks and holes. And even more then making front door mats. I have projects planned for the kitchen and dining area of my home.
One of the benefits of making your own coir mat is that coir is water-resistant and will dry quickly. Due to this, mildew will not get a chance to form on your custom mat.
Another benefit is that you can use it to easily clean off dirt and debris from shoes. No more worrying about the kids tracking in the dirt when they come inside.

- Cricut Standard Grip Mat
- Cricut Machine

- Load your design and resize it to the size of your coir mat.
- You may have to separate the design so that it can all be cut with your cutter.
- For this one, I made the design all the same color because we are making a stencil and cut each welded each line so that it cut as 1 piece.
- Cut a stencil with your Cutting machine.
- Weed the inner portions of your vinyl, leaving the voided area, remember we are making a vinyl stencil.
- Apply transfer Tape to your stencil (I use some that I have used over and over so most of the sticky are gone)
- Remove paper backing.
- Apply the vinyl onto the mat.
- Carefully pull off the transfer paper leaving your custom stencil behind onto the mat.
- Use the masking tape to tape down the design to the DIY doormat.
- Using the tape cover the whole mat so that you only get Flex seal colors where you want it.
- Working with each flex seal color 1 at a time, and covering the area you aren't working with, begin to spray the stenciled mat.
- Hold the flex seal nozzle directly above the mat, making sure to stay above and spray over your words until they are fully covered.
- Repeat with each flex seal color.
- Remove the vinyl stencil as soon as you are done spraying, you don't want it to stick or become glued down.
- Allow to dry for at least 24 hours
