WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE a Spiderweb doormat
- Black Doormat – Dollar Tree
- White Acrylic Paint
- White Chalk Marker
- Narrow Paint Brush
HOW TO MAKE a Dollar Tree Spiderweb doormat
Start by making lines spread out across the doormat using your ruler and the chalk marker. The ruler will be your best friend with this project! You can eyeball the lines, or measure out where you want the lines to be. If you decide to eyeball it, you might want to use a piece of chalk first. That way you can easily remove the lines if it doesn’t look right. It doesn’t have to be exact, so I would just say go for it.
NEXT…Now that you have the lines drawn with the chalk marker, go back over each line with white acrylic paint. Use a narrow paintbrush for this step. Just take your time and enjoy the process. It really does come together quickly.
Let the paint dry. You can also go back in with the black chalk marker and fill in any spaces, or highlight any areas to add depth and dimension.
Now for the fun part! What really makes this doormat stand out is having curved edges. You can achieve this look by using sharp scissors to cut out the lines on top of the mat.
Can you believe this Halloween doormat was made for just about $2? Look how pretty it looks layered on my DIY buffalo check doormat.
