How To Make a Buffalo Check Doormat!

These two up above couldn’t help but be a part of this fall project today ;)… This week I was brainstorming how I could make a doormat and make it cute for fall as well. So of course buffalo check came to mind and I got to work! I am joining my sweet friend Ashley at Modern Glam for a blog hop of DIY doormats today and how fun is that?!

Here are the things I used to make this mat and the steps I followed…

  • Multipurpose acrylic paint (I found some that said it was suitable for outdoors as well).
  • Foam brush (I tried others pictured below, but found that this one was the best.
  • Painters tape
  • An outdoor mat
  • Paper plate for paint dipping.

To get things started, I began to layout the tape in the pattern I wanted. This could be any pattern, stripes, plaid, etc…

Once I found my pattern, I pressed the tape into place. Now of course it would be smartest to measure and do things exact… But I just eyeballed it, haha!

Next I began dipping my foam brush in a good amount of paint and pressing it firmly within my taped squares. I looked at some fabric I had on hand to make sure I was placing the colors correctly.

After I got all the squares in place, I pulled the tape off.

To finish off the buffalo check, I taped off individual squares for the next color.

And that was it! This actually worked better than I thought and came together rather quickly. Now I want to go make a bunch of rugs for each season this year, lol. I hope you enjoyed!
