What to do: 

·         First tape off the edges of your mat, I measured buy doing two pieces from the edge.

·         Next lay down your vinyl sticker letters to spell out your message

·         Using the roller paint the uncovered spots

·         Peal off your letters and the tape around the edges

·         With a paintbrush add a pop of color

·         After it dries, place a piece of fabric like a pillow case over the painted sections and iron on medium heat to seal the paint so it does not brush off on your guest’s shoes. Use Rowenta’s Eco Iron and save engergy while DIYing!
