Haunted Mansion DIY Welcome Mat

Welcome, Foolish Mortals.

We're both huge fans of The Haunted Mansion and wanted to welcome you to our 31 Days of Craft-o-ween with some Disney love!

Enter...if you dare.

We were going to lay our welcome mat to rest during the final days of summer...

Instead, it rose from the dead with this easy updo!

First we found a Halloweeny font online and printed our saying on cardstock. Next we spray painted the whole mat black, as it was drying we cut out our letters. When the mat was dried we spaced out our letters on it and sprayed the back of them with spray adhesive and pressed them back on the mat. This really helped keep the letters flat and in place before adding the smokey blue coat of spray paint.

It was easy to peal up the letters once we finished spray painting.

Some of the letters needed a little extra love, so we touched them up with acrylic black paint.

Isn't it to die for??...Happy haunting!
