DIY Halloween Stenciled Doormat
I’ve been seeing crows taking the place of spiders, black cats, and witches when it comes to decor. Inspired by this darling crow coir doormat, I knew I could skip the shipping time and make my own in a matter of minutes at half the cost… and so I did! 😉

Tips to Make a Halloween Stenciled Doormat
Overspray or bleeds under your stencil can happen so we used scissors and simply trimmed around the oversprayed areas. Don’t worry, it will blend as coir is a rough material and the fibers are all slightly different heights.
That’s really it! You can use any shape if you prefer the standard black cat to our black crow! Now check out 15 other adorably spooky Halloween DIY’s below from our talented blogger friends! 🙂
