Welcome mats are so fun for the holidays! Make a simple and fun DIY Halloween doormat for your home with spray paint. Templates provided.Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I love decorating for it. But many times my eyes are larger than my proverbial craft stomach, so there are only so many crafts I can make or decor ideas I can try. Time is limited my friends, and that’s why I’m sharing this Halloween doormat with you.

I already had white and black spray paint in my arsenal (maybe you do too?) and so all I needed to do was grab an inexpensive, plain doormat to make the magic happen.

“Yes but what about the bat shapes?” you ask. Well, we have a template for you. You’ll just have to print that up, cut it out, and then this Halloween doormat can be yours. Learn how to make it below!

If you use regular printer paper, the paint will just soak through. I recommend going with cardstock from the scrapbook section of the craft store (you can trim the single 12 x 12″ pieces down to fit your printer if needed). You can also buy brochure paper at the office supply store.
