Winter is fast approaching.

November 1st, and you know what that means.

WINTER’S COMING SOON.

My new carpet, too. Do it yourself!

I like to make seasonal welcome mats inspired by my favourite fandoms. And since I never did the Throne Game, it didn’t make any sense.

If you want to make your own carpet, just take a simple rug, some paint, a sponge brush, your favourite template, and you’re done!

Turn your throne game into a welcome mat: Winter is coming up

This is what you need:

  • plain coconut mat
  • Exterior black acrylic paint
  • Foam brushes
  • Two sheets of 12×12 cardboard paper.
  • Straight pins
  • Packaging tape
  • Cricut Explore Air II and cutting accessories (mats, weeding)
  • Winter is coming Design and stencil – STANULT

Let’s talk about the carpets first. I buy all my basic carpets at IKEA. They MUST be more affordable than if you bought them on Amazon or even in craft shops. IKEA sells its single coconut mats in two sizes. For my porch I opted for a smaller size, which is about 23.5 inches wide and 15.5 inches high.

First download the above file and cut it out using the Cricut Explore Air II (or manually). After loading both files into the Cricut Design Space, make sure the size is correct, about 22.5 inches wide.

Engrave the letters on the cutting mat and place a large piece of scrap paper on the mat to serve as a template.

After confirming the required interval, use the tape to secure the model. Then add smaller pieces of the cut-out to the inside of the letters and secure them with straight pins (such as the eye of the scary wolf or the inside of the letter R).

As soon as you are ready to paint, pour the acrylic paint outside into the paint tray and prepare a sponge brush. For the next step, you may want to wear gloves, as it is useful to hold pieces of paper while drawing to hold them in place.

It’s time to start painting. Dip a sponge brush in the paint (you need a good coating on the sponge) and dip the sponge in the area you are trying to cover. Be careful, dab only from top to bottom to avoid accidentally getting under parts of the template or the drawing underneath the template. Take the time to draw and if necessary add a second coat of paint to obtain the desired colour on the carpet.

NOTE – Let me add that with every painted carpet I’ve made, I’ve always feared that I would have to throw the whole project away and start again. My small parts moved while painting, the paint wasn’t as thick as I wanted it to be and I couldn’t imagine it would come out legible. But every time it works! The moral of the story: If you feel you are doing badly, leave the project and eventually decide if it works or not.

Let the carpet dry after painting the whole template. As soon as the paint is no longer wet (or sooner, if you are impatient like me), slowly and carefully remove the templates.

If necessary, you can go back and remove edges and light stains with extra paint.

Let the carpet dry completely and put it proudly in front of the door!
