Make your own DIY Outdoor Rug with Spray Paint and Stencil with a little spray paint, and an awesome stencil from Stencil Revolution!
In the new DIY outdoor seating area I shared the other week, I featured this new rug which was actually a DIY! Outdoor rugs can be expensive and hard to find (just like indoor rugs!) and so when I saw this one at Costco earlier in the season for less than $20, I snatched it up! At the time, I had no idea it’d turn into this beauty! In fact, I had no idea it’d have such a lovely deck to sit on top either! As I mentioned in that post, the deck sort of just came together last minute and I decided that all the beautiful furniture I got, from Article, needed to have a prettier rug than just a simple ribbed gray one.
So, when I got an email from Stencil Revolution, I knew exactly where I would use one of their amazing designs! I knew it wouldn’t be hard to make my own DIY outdoor rug with spray paint and stencil! And it wasn’t! It only took me maybe 30 minutes and 2 cans of spray paint. Now I have a large outdoor rug, 6×9, for about $40! The price makes me happy, and the finished design does too!
If you want to do your own diy outdoor rug with spray paint and stencil then follow along the steps below! Its actually pretty self explanatory, but I’ve included pictures and steps anyway! I hope you can use this tutorial to make a great outdoor rug yourself and save some money!
- Plain outdoor rug (I also got a similar one from Home Depot last year for a great price too!) //
- Spray Paint (I used Rustoleum satin white) //
- Stencil (Ours is the Harmony Mandala in the 20×20 size)
- Lay out your rug and decide on spacing. I didn’t make this too hard on myself, I just measured and started right in the middle, then moved along from there!
- Lay down stencil and use old towels, newspaper, or other fabric you don’t care about to cover the edges of the stencil so there is no overspray. I taped old towels down to the edge of my stencil. This made the whole thing easy to move around!
- Spray paint over your stencil!
- Once you’re happy with the saturation of paint, move the stencil to the next spot and repeat!
I’m very happy with how this rug came out! And since I don’t have a full gazebo cover or anything, I don’t have to worry about an expensive rug getting ruined in the weather. This DIY outdoor rug with spray paint and stencil only cost a fraction of what other rugs cost so there is no stress if it gets rained or spilled on. I love that! We got this stencil for free from Stencil Revolution, but decided to share this post and our experience with it solely because we loved it! Their stencils are awesome quality and I definitely recommend them! Shipping was fast and they’re very professional. They have lovely designs like this mandala but also funny designs, farmhouse styles, cute sayings; really something for everyone! And I already have plans for using this stencil again!
