  • Plain outdoor mat
  • Your chosen colors of textile paint
  • Duct tape
  • Sponge
  • Paintbrush
  • Use duct tape to cover the areas that won't be painted. Do this according to your design. You may want to consider having vertical, horizontal, or even chevron stripes!
  • Once you've finalized the pattern, start painting the uncovered areas using a paintbrush or sponge brush. 

RL Tip: Make sure that your outdoor mat is suitable for textile paint. If your rug is made of plastic, you can use spray paint for a better finish.
