Step up your stoop supernaturally with this inventive doormat. All you need is
a can of indoor/outdoor matte-black spray paint, a plain coir mat (about $23 for
an 18-by-30-inch mat; Kempf), and our downloadable stencil template.
Print the stencil template, using a photocopier to enlarge it as needed.
Trace the design onto stencil film with a fine-tip permanent marker, then go over the cutlines you just drew with a utility knife or electric stencil-cutting pen.
Lay the stencil over your mat, securing the edges with painter's or masking tape to prevent shifting. Apply three or four coats of spray paint until opaque.
Remove the stencil, and place by your front door to get trick-or-treaters off on the right foot.
