About Easy DIY wooden Doormart Tutorials
Need a way to spruce up your front porch? How about a handmade DIY Wooden Doormat! This doormat is super easy to build and is made with inexpensive pressure treated 2x2 balusters and sisal rope. Make this in an afternoon and have a great conversation piece at your front door. And as you'll see from the steps...it's so easy!
(10) 36" pressure treated 2x2 balusters
15' of 3/8" sisal rope
Miter saw or hand saw
Cordless drill or drill press
7/16" drill bit
Step 1: Cut the Pieces to Size
Out of the 10 36" 2x2's, cut 30 long pieces at 9-3/4" long and 12 short pieces at 3" long.
You can get 3 long pieces and 2 short pieces per 2x2.
Step 2: Drill the Holes in the Pieces
Drill a 7/16" hole into the short pieces that is 1-1/2" from the end and 3/4" from the sides. In the long pieces you will drill two holes, one on each end spaced 1-1/2" from the end and 3/4" from the sides.
Before the next step, round all the hard edges from the cutting with a sander or sandpaper.
Step 3: Apply Finish/sealer to the Pieces
Use the sealer or exterior finish of your choice and finish all the pieces. I used a cedar color tinted exterior weatherproofer. I put on 2 coats for color consistency and protection.
Step 4: String the Sisal Rope Through the The Pieces
Start with a short piece and alternate back and forth between short pieces and long piece for 6 of each. Run the 3/8" sisal rope through the pieces. To help thread the rope, wrap the end with electrical tape.
After the first row, add in 6 long pieces per row and string the rope through the pieces as shown. On the last row, use the remaining 6 short pieces as in the first row.
Tie a knot in the far end of the rope and then pull the rope tight through the whole doormat. Tie a knot on the other end and pull it as tight to the wood as you can. Cut the excess rope and you are done!
