I wanted a miniature welcome mat for my little rubber boots. Nobody wants mud indoors.
List of supplies needed:
- sisal rope
- card stock (I used black)
- tweezers optional
Cut a 3″x 2.75″ piece of cardstock. This will be your base for your welcome mat. Cut approximately a 6″ piece of rope and unravel.
Apply glue to your card stock in small sections. I used thick and tacky. Pinch the rope in between your fingers and cut a small section off.
Set into glue. I did this in small sections. You could use tweezers to hold the sisal.
I found that it was easier to trim the height as I was filling. Letting sections dry and triming. Trimming became harder if I let my section of mat get too big before I trimmed the height. Sharp scissors were essential.
Once dry I brushed lightly and used tape to remove the loose pieces. Trim and decorate as you wish. I used black paint and stenciled my “Welcome” lettering and trim.
All done and ready for any mud that my little rubber boots may try to track in doors.
