Kmart hack: DIY Christmas mat

There is just 8 weeks until Christmas so it’s time to start bringing that festive cheer into our homes.

Today we’re going to show you how to turn a bland jute Kmart door mat into a Nordic-inspired festive mat using little more than some black paint and a stencil.

Items you will need

  • Door mat (we bought ours from Kmart)
  • Black paint (we used Impact by Haymes)
  • Paint brush
  • Cardboard or other thick material as stencil
  • Pen
  • Scissors

Steps:

  1. Make your stencil by cutting out your Christmas tree shape. We used a thick piece of felt but would recommend cardboard as a better option.
  2. Cut out Christmas shape

  3. Paint several Christmas trees randomly on the face of the mat. Consider clustering several trees together to create a forest feel.
  4. Paint christmas trees

  5. Paint the border of the mat in two coats of black paint to finish the look.
