DIY Wood Doormat
My DIY wood doormat is and easy one day project. I made this one 18″ x 36 1/2″ to fit our front door.
This DIY wood doormat is super simple to make. This is what the 1″ x 1 ” wood looks like when you bring it home. I had Home Depot cut these down enough to fit in my car. I used a handsaw to cut my 24 wood slats at 18″ long each. Use a little sandpaper on the ends to smooth any rough spots. If you have a table saw, it;s easy to rip a 1" x 6" board into 1" strips too.
Make a template from paper to mark where you'll drill the holes. I marked 3 holes on each slat. One 3" from each of the two ends and one in the center.
Paint and seal your wood slats and beads. String the wood slats with a bead in between. So simple! I kept the drill handy for a hole or two that needed a little widening to fit my cord through….just put the drill bit in the hole and wiggle it around to open up the hole.
I love the bright color at the front door.
It looks great with my faux painted copper door. I share this tutorial on Hometalk too!
I love that it wont shead like the old doormat we had too!
