Merry and bright, indeed! And easy to boot. Check out how to make this festive wooden door mat below!
Missy from Marvelously Messy created this wooden slat door mat from an old rolling kitchen cart shelf. If you don't happen to have one of those around, this is still an easy project. I'm thinking some 2x3s cut down for your base slats and then some 1x4s cut to size for the top would work just fine. Paint your top pieces in a nice, festive gradient like Ms. Missy did, nail them into place, and you're done. What do you think?
However you decide to make the wooden mat itself, be sure to check out Missy's tutorial for painting and stenciling!
