Painted Car Mats

Looking for a cool way to customize your auto interior? How about a set of car mats made to your liking? This method is thick and durable and you can paint it any way you want!

Heavyweight canvas (primed)
Rubber stamps or stencils
Your old car mat
Sewing machine with heavy needle

Use your old car mat as a guide. Cut shapes out of the canvas and lay them on top of the old car mat until you have the general shape. Make sure your design overlaps the carmat because you will need to sew the pieces together. Turn the pieces over and number them on the back, and then take a picture on your cell phone for reference. I’m sure there is an easier method, but this is how I made mine…)

Paint and embellish the pieces, let dry and then coat them with 5 to 6 coats of varnish 9let dry between coats). Set them back on the car mat and sew them piece by piece until you have the whole thing. Cut away excess. Sew around the edges.

Add two more coats of varnish. Repeat for the remaining car mats.

TIP: If you want, you can glue rug grippers to the back of the mats so they don’t slide in your car.

Peace, love, and glitter!
