Start with a plain doormat. Print out our free rainbow pattern, tape it together and cut out the rainbow shape. Pin it in place using straight pins and trace the pattern with a permanent marker.
Cut out Rainbow
Use heavy-duty scissors to cut the doormat into the rainbow shape.
Cut the rainbow pattern into separate pieces. Pin every other arc onto the doormat.
Paint First Colors
Paint your first three colors, working the paint down into the fibers of the doormat. Paint two coats of each color, letting it dry between coats. Remove the pattern and let dry completely.
Pin Second Half of Pattern
Pin the other three arcs into place on top of the painted colors on the rainbow.
Paint Second Colors
Paint your last three colors, again painting two coats and letting the paint dry between each coat.
Remove the pattern and touch up any sections that weren’t fully painted the first time. Let dry completely before bringing it outside to your doorway.
