Well, hello there, long-lost friends! I hope you’re all well and enjoying some nice weather in your neck of the woods. It’s gorgeous here in Dallas but it was even more gorgeous in the Bahamas, which is where we spent our spring break. I’ll have a trip report later this week, and you’ll have to promise not to hate me after I tell you about it. We had a magical time and I really enjoyed getting treated like a celebrity for a few day.
Let’s jump into this Knock It Off DIY challenge, hosted by the lovely Jess of Domicile 37. My inspiration is this adorable bunny door mat from World Market. I can’t promise mine is cheaper (they cost about the same), but I like how my bunnies are more whimsical and made of sugar-coated marshmallows. Mmmm, candy…
Here’s what you’ll need–a cheap, plain doormat (I found mine at IKEA), a can of pink spray paint that’s rated for outdoor use, card stock, a black permanent marker, and a marshmallow bunny stencil, which I found at Made Everyday with Dana. (Thanks, Dana!)
I printed out my stencil on card stock after following Dana’s instructions on blowing my bunny up and then cut the shape out. Next, I added some extra card stock to the sides of my cut out to keep over-spray to a minimum. (Umm, I should’ve covered the top–don’t be like me, ok? Y’all know by now that I’m just a giant crafting cautionary tale.)
Here’s how things looked after I finished spray painting the mat. Peeps just aren’t Peeps without eyes and a nose, are they?
Time to grab your black Sharpie and draw on some eyes and a nose. I free-handed mine, and they turned out fine.
The girls love the door mat and I love it, too. (Not as much as I love eating Peeps or anything, but I love it as much as anyone can love a door mat.) Time to go see what my fine blogging friends came up with for their World Market inspired projects–prepare to be impressed!
