Welcome your guests from the moment they enter your home with the Holiday Snowman DIY Doormat. This DIY welcome mat is so precious and easy to make. Repurpose an old doormat that you don't love anymore and turn it into a cheerful snowman. A little chalk paint goes a long way when it comes to this Christmas craft! Of course, you don't need to make a doormat just for Christmas. This cheerful snowman can be kept out all season. Give your guests a grin as soon as they arrive with this charming little guy.

Not much room for practical purposes, but it might not matter all that much because this guy is too darn cute! This is a great EASY craft to gift to someone who has just about everything. They could be customized, too. Perhaps you could use that Tulip fabric paint and freehand the last name on to the red scarf! Neat!
