Have a Nice Run DIY DoormatIf you've been on the internet, you've probably seen these cute coir doormats around. They exist for tacos ("come back with tacos") and mean girl quotes ("you're like really pretty") and amazon deliveries ("if you're pizza, amazon or Ryan Gosling, we're home"). But we wanted ones for runners! So we took matters into our own hands and made one. Now it's easy for you to do too, with our downloadable template and step-by-step instructions. Make leaving for every run a happy reminder to Have A Nice Run!

First, get the goods:


Step 1: After you download the template, print it out onto 8.5 x 11 paper and tape together like so:

Step 2: Take clear packaging tape, and go over all the letters. I like to call it the poor man's laminate. This will add a bit of sturdiness to the paper when it's time to cut and paint.

Step 3: Carefully cut out the letters with an exacto knife. Be sure to save the middle of the A's and the R.

Step 4: Pin the print onto your mat, take care to pin down the point parts that may flop up. The tighter the pin job, the less likely it is that paint will wander underneath the paper.

Step 5: Spray paint the cut out area. Preferably outside ;)
