    • Cricut Machine
    • Cricut Standard Grip Mat
    • Weeding Tool
    • Vinyl Scraper


    1. Download the design.
    2. Then upload and size the image to fit your doormat, I like to make mine 11.5 by 23.5
    3. Cut a stencil with your Cricut machine.
    4. Weed the image and apply transfer Tape to your stencil (I reuse the same piece so that it isn't as sticky)
    5. Apply the vinyl onto the mat
    6. Carefully pull off the transfer paper leaving your custom stencil behind onto the mat
    7. Use the masking tape to tape down the design to the floor mat
    8. Using a blow dryer or heat gun, heat the vinyl so that it sort of melts tight.
    9. Apply paint by dabbing with your brush, I sprayed a light coat of white spray paint to prime a bit.painting coir doormat
    10. Remove the vinyl stencil as soon as you are done painting and touch up any areas that may need more paintpeeling back stencil on gall door mat
