DIY Striped Rug Tutorial

Hello Sunshine! Over the weekend we brought out our halloween decorations to spook up the front yard. We want to keep things similar to our kinda' spooky halloween front porch from last year. Did you know that was our first time ever decorating for halloween? True story!

This year we want to change a few things up, starting with our outdoor rug. Our new diy striped rug will set the tone for our witches a brewing front porch! Find out how to make your own diy striped outdoor rug in 3 easy steps.


STEP ONE | Gather all materials needed.

STEP TWO | Measure out your stripes and tape off the areas you don't want to paint. My rug is 3' x 6' and I wanted my stripes to be 3" wide. Using the dry-brush stippling method, tap your brush in an up and down motion over rug. Remove tape.

STEP THREE | Allow to dry completely. Place on your porch and enjoy!

This is a really easy project that looks great and will cost you a fraction of what you could buy a pre-made striped outdoor rug. Give it a try to spice up your halloween fall porch.

See ya soon!
