DIY Doormat Planter

by Lynn Lilly, May 31 2018

I am on an outdoor decor kick right now and I just checked planters off my list. I used an old rubber doormat, wooden box, glue and white spray paint to create a unique planter box that is taking my front porch decor up a notch!

  • Wood Box
  • Rubber Door Mat
  • Industrial Craft Glue
  • Scissors
  • White Spray Paint


  1. If the box is not meant for the outdoors, treat with weatherproof spray. 
  2. If the wooden box does not have drainage holes, use a drill to add a few holes.                                           
  3. Spray paint the wooden box white.               
  4. Cut a piece of the rubber mat to fit the front of the box.    
  5. Attach the mat to the box using the glue.    
  6. Allow the box to dry based on the glue directions.
  7. Spray paint the mat side of the box white. Repeat coats until the rubber is completely white.
