- Start by printing out the font (Download). The design shown in this tutorial comes in five separate sheets.
- Once printed, cut out the black text with a detail knife. It’s more precise than scissors but can also be accomplished with scissors. This will create your stencil.
- Place your stencil on the door mat as you would like. Begin painting the letters in using a sponge brush and desired acrylic paint colors. Use a dabbing motion instead of strokes when using the foam brush to have clean edges.
- Once completed remove the stencil and let the paint dry for 24-48 hours before placing it on the ground to be utilized.
