Say Hello to summer and your house guests with a DIY Aloha Welcome Mat
Aloha summer! Golden summer days mean one thing, I have pineapples and beaches on my mind. There is something about eating a sweet pineapple on a hot day that just brings joy to my soul.
I try to add in pineapples wherever I can during the summer. Whether it’s drinking some Sparkling Pineapple Lemonade, making a candy Pineapple Centerpiece, or crocheting a few Mini Pineapples that I can wear.
I have a friend who paints the cutest DIY doormats. It’s a craft I’ve been wanting to try, and when I found some plain doormats on sale the other day it was a quick decision to pick up a few.
Aloha Welcome Mat
- Pineapple stencil
- Acrylic paint
- Black marker
I’m combining a little stenciling with a little lettering to create my very own DIY Aloha Welcome Mat. Step one was to stencil the pineapple in the middle, which is also doubling as my letter O. I used an acrylic paint in the color island breeze to stencil my pineapple.
Once the pineapple was stenciled, and dry, I could add in the rest of my lettering. I sketched out the letters with a black marker and then filled them in with some dark gray acrylic paint.
With my welcome mat all painted the last step was to spray a clear sealant over the top!
My Aloha welcome mat is going to look perfect on the front porch alongside my Seashell Wreath.
