Go, Team, Go!

No matter what team you are rooting for this football season, this easy DIY doormat will make a perfect addition to you porch d├ęcor!  First we start with AstroTurf!  I bought 2 feet from Lowes off of the big roles in the back where they keep the carpet.
Other materials I used were: white acrylic paint, paint brush, scissors, painter's tape, ruler, and stencils.
I started off by cutting the AstroTurf into a 2x3 foot section.  Then I folded the piece in half to make a crease in order to find the center.
I then taped off about 1 inch wide lines up and down in the center, and then halfway through the left and right sides and a small strip on the edge.  I then placed one of the stencil blanks in the dead center and ran a strip of tape across the top and bottom of the blank the width of the mat.
I then dabbed paint in between the taped lines and stenciled on the letters and numbers.  I did make the mistake of not stenciling the numbers as close to the lines as I would have liked in this particular example, but I still love how it turned out!
I just love how cute the finished product turned out!
