MAKE THIS ADORABLE JUST MARRIED DOOR MAT DIY

DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-7

A lot of newlyweds say to us that once their wedding was over they felt a little sad that they didn’t have any more projects to get stuck into and this made us think about all the just married DIYs that could be made once you’ve tied the knot to keep the spirit of your special day going! Say hello to the just married door mat! It’s the perfect way to let the world know that you’re celebrating and is a super fun and easy craft that you can make after your wedding! If you like, you could even make it before hand and have it ready, or I love the idea of one of the bridesmaids making one and surprising the bride and groom with it once they get home! How cute would that be?! Here’s how to make your own…

DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-1 DIY Just Married Door Mat Spray Paint Rustoleum Cricut Newlywed Project Tutorial-6

YOU WILL NEED:

A door mat // Spraint paint in the colours of your choice (we used Rustoleum Candy Pink and Rustoleum Berry Pink) // Rustoleum Crystal Clear Protective Coat // A Cricut machine* // Just Married Template** // Cardstock // tape // newspaper //

*If you don’t have a Cricut then fret not! You can still create the DIY, you’ll just need to draw the stencil onto card using a ruler and pencil, then cut out the pieces using a stanley knife

**We’ve included the Just Married template above, but if you’re using a bigger size mat (like me) you’ll probably need to cut out the ‘JUST’ first on one piece of card, followed by ‘MAR’ and then ‘RIED’ also on separate pieces of card. The templates for these are here: ‘JUST‘ , ‘MAR‘ , ‘RIED

STEP 1:

Either upload the templates to the Cricut design space and set your machine to cut out the card stock or as said above, cut out the stencils by free hand.

STEP 2:

Once everything is cut out you’ll want to tape the templates down to the mat, making sure that they’re secure. I used double sided tape to stick the middle of the A’s, D’s, etc down.

I mentioned this before in our free printable placemats post but some parts of your table decor can be completely overlooked or even missed out and i’m not saying that you need to have coasters across all of the tables, BUT if you did want to go ‘more is more’ then I think these floral coasters would be an awesome part of your decor! You could even double them up as favours if you wanted to! WIN WIN!

DIY Wifey Hubby mugs metallic gold bronze geometric bride grrom homemade gift idea cricut_-5

I can’t deny that I’m a self confessed tea addict, by midday I’m already settling into my third or fourth cup and you and me both know that there’s nothing better than enjoying tea or coffee from a beautiful mug am I right?! Ok well maybe enjoying tea or coffee from a beautiful mug with donuts and biscuits is slightly better but what can you do?! These mugs are super easy to make and would be the perfect gift for newly weds or you could even make them yourself for you and your other half! Here’s how to create your own:

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain white mugs (we got ours for 90p each from Sainsbury’s) // Gold spray paint (We used rustoleum) // Masking tape // Newspaper // A Cricut Explore and Gold Vinyl* // Wifey template PDF or JPEG // Hubby template PDF or JPEG //

*Please note: We’re using the Cricut Explore to cut out the wifey and hubby templates out of gold vinyl, if you don’t have a Cricut machine then you could try adhering some gold stickers with some sort of strong glue but we have no idea how well that would work or how long the stickers would remain on the mugs so we really recommend using the gold vinyl!

STEP 1:

Using your masking tape, create a geometric shape on the bottom half of the mug and cover the rest of the mug up with your newspaper to keep it protected from the spray paint.

STEP 2:

Spray paint the bottom part of your mug gold, allow to dry and then repeat with a second coat.

Step 3: Once thoroughly mixed, pour the concrete into a plastic cup. To create the vase, only half fill a plastic cup with concrete and place another plastic cup on top of the half filled concrete within the mold. Hold the second plastic cup in place whilst continuing to fill the mold up to the lip of the cup.
