Quick and Easy Spiderweb Doormat Craft
Make this webbed doormat, with its very own resident spider, to greet guests this fall.
Fall gardens are still filled with life and activity. As the garden prepares for its winter slumber, it provides us with a bountiful harvest of squash, gourds and pumpkins. Spiders too are still busy at their craft, spinning their webs to catch their next meal. Each web is a work of art. I was inspired by them to create a versatile outdoor mat that is the perfect way to greet fall guests, trick-or-treaters, or add a touch of whimsy to the family entryway.
The base of this rug is a cocoa mat that can be found in large home improvement stores. This craft is also a great way to spruce up an outdoor rug that has seen better days. With a few coats of spray paint, any rug can be transformed into a work of art. I used outdoor quality paints to help extend the life of the painted details on the mat.
The spiderweb on this mat is versatile. You can use the pattern that I share here or come up with your very own ideas. Try sketching out your design first on a piece of paper to get an idea of what your web will look like. Here is what you will need to get started on this craft.
- An 18" x 30" cocoa mat
- Black outdoor spray paint
- White outdoor craft paint
- Paint brush
- Plastic spider
- Outdoor adhesive
