Super Cute DIY Fall Doormats to Welcome fall in Style

The drop in temperature outside always sends a wave of energy and excitement into me and leaves me wanting to be creative and do something (pun intended!). I have been super into DIY house décor these days so I have been searching for innovative ideas to change the look of my home and then it clicked to me, I can design my own fall doormats!

DIY doormats are inexpensive and easy to do, so I decided to have some fun myself this year and welcome fall with some super cute doormats. So in search of ideas, I checked over Design Bundles to find so many cute designs!

So for all the people out there who are obsessed with DIYs these days and want to welcome the fall season in full style this year, the following are the ideas for DIY fall doormats that I tried and you’re gonna love!

1. Fall Doormats with Quotes!

This doormat was one of the easiest and hassle-free ones to make as apart from a thing or two, I already had everything at my place! To design this, you will need the following things:

  • Your favorite fall quote’s template design
  • A cardboard paper
  • Scissors
  • Access to a printer
  • Permanent markers
  • Acrylic or spray paints
  • A plastic sheet (optional)
  • Paintbrush
  • And of course, a plain doormat (preferably black)

The process is pretty easy. All you need to do is print out your favorite fall quote’s template design on the cardboard paper and cut it out with the help of scissors. Ta-da, you just created your customized stencil!  

Place this stencil on the doormat and hold it in position. This is a bit tricky part as you want to ensure the stencil is nicely in place as otherwise, your outline may look unfinished. Now it’s up to you if you want to use spray paints or acrylic ones, you can use whatever is available.

For spray paints, directly spray the paint on the stencil but if you are going with acrylics, use a permanent marker to make an outline first. Once the outline is made, you can remove the stencil and fill in the paint with the use of paintbrushes! Once done, leave it to dry for at least a day or until you are sure the paint has completely dried. You can place this on the main entryway as it would make the perfect fall front doormat!

Note: I spread out a plastic sheet before getting on with this, I suggest you do the same if you are not looking forward to a tile cleaning session afterward!

2. Fall Doormats with Leaves!

I loved how this one turned out. It’s super easy to make and requires almost the same stuff as the former one such as:

  •  Fall Leaves Design Template
  •  Cardboard Paper
  • Scissors
  •   Permanent Marker
  •  Paints and Brushes
  •   Plain Doormat

All you need to do for this one is print some fall leaves on the cardboard, place them on different positions on the mat and trace them out. Now fill them in with rustic colors and there you go! Super fun, quick, and easy to do!

I hope this blog inspired you to get into the DIY zone. Try out these fall doormat ideas and let me know how they turned out!
