Hi Carol, Here is a project with directions on how to paint a mat. Have fun! https://www.hometalk.com/diy/floors-ceilings/custom-dollar-store-floor-mat-40787727
Custom Dollar Store Floor Mat
This is a pretty easy project Carol. I would use a stencil and craft paint. If you just tape down the stencil then using a foam pouncer stencil the design with not too much paint, it should come out great. The fibers in the mat will not allow you to use a very detailed stencil but something with large cut out areas should work great.
I would stencil and use paint, then seal with clear sealer like Krylon crystal clear.
Yes, you can paint those mats. You can use a stencil, tape it down and spray or paint with a sponge pouncer. Either will work well. I created my own stencil using 4" letters to saw "Get Lost". It made a great conversation piece and cause lots of laughter. I used black paint and the sponge pouncer. I made several of them one year for holiday gifts.
What kind of paint did you use?
One of my friends did this - super easy to do, she made a paper stencil, used a brush and chalk paint. She then sprayed it with a polycrylic to protect it and seal the chalk paint
I would use chalk paint to paint it an then spray with a clear sealer. Good Luck!
I have painted a few of these using regular acrylic craft paint. I used a very stiff old brush to really get the paint into the nap of the coir. Just spray clear matte lacquer over the entire mat after painting. Good luck!
Thanks so much for the information. That is exactly what I did. Here is a photo of how it turned out.
Acrylic paint and stencils or even painters tape to create desired shapes. I used spray paint for this design but the concept is the same. https://avdoeswhat.com/how-to-paint-an-outdoor-rug/
I messed up on a letter. Can I remove the paint at all?
Absolutely! These are very popular. Use a sealer for a longer-lasting design.
