Thank you for being a Lucy Loves DIY subscriber! I’m so excited to share our first project with you.

Welcome the New Year with signature dog mom style by wishing everyone who comes over Peace, Love and Dogs! This month’s DIY tutorial is for a Dog Mom Welcome Mat. I had so much fun creating this project and I’m truly blown away by how great it turned out! You are going to be so proud of yourself every time you see this mat at the door.

In this post you will find all the supplies and instructions to make this craft yourself. I’ve included a few variations so you can customize the mat to fit your personality. I recommend you watch my video tutorial first, then download the stencils and printable instructions to familiarize yourself with the project. Once you know what you’re going to be doing, check out the pre-selected Amazon Prime shopping list I put together for you. These are the exact supplies I used (or in the case of the rug, the best substitute).



Save these files to your computer, then print them out in landscape orientation set to take up the full page. Following this method, the three shapes will fit nicely on your welcome mat. Choose between a dog paw or dog silhouette for the 3rd shape.

Print this page out and save it where you keep your DIY supplies. As you go through each month’s project you’ll start to build you own little book of Lucy Loves DIY instructions.

Below are all the supplies you will need, all available through Amazon Prime so you will have them ASAP. The exact rug I used in this video is from Target, if you prefer to recreate that exact look you can purchase it here or at your local store.
