my scandinavian home: Wednesday DIY - hallway cloud

Wednesday DIY - hallway cloud

Wednesday, 5 June 2013

With the arrival of Summer (sort of) here in the North, little feet are going in and out of the front door all day long to collect scooters, tricycles, buckets and spades.....a doormat is therefore essential, but they're often so boring aren't they? I was so excited to come across this very cool cloud shaped DIY door mat by Shine Design. It's cool, cheap and quick to make! Genius! 

Shine Design with kind permission

Here's how to make it: buy a door mat like the Lynäs from IKEA. Find a cloud shape you would like to replicate and use a bowl to draw around to recreate the shape on the doormat. Cut out with a pair of scissors!

Something for your hallway perhaps?

PS I love hearing about DIY projects for the home, if you have any you would like to share please send me an e-mail at

Have a lovely day!

  6. Hi Niki, thank you for sharing, it is a very good idea :)

  7. This is such a good idea!! Thank you for sharing. Door mats are so boring, a cloud shaped on is much better. x

  8. This is such a cool idea, just when i want to change my doormat!:)

  9. I just discovered you can buy this type of floor mat as large as you want from a roll from a big box store like Menards/Lowes very inexpensively. A person could make any shape they want, as big as they want!

    1. Cooool, and then you could have a different shape at each door (if you have a front and back door) .....but which shapes? A sunshine? A shoe?!....a dog poop shape (to remind you to wipe your feet) hahaha!

  10. Wow! I like it! ;)
