10 Personalized Door Mats to Greet Your Thanksgiving Guests

It’s coming soon! The day when you’ll hear knock after knock on your front door. When cars will line up in front of your home. When your porch will get the most attention it gets all year. If you’re hosting your family’s Thanksgiving dinner, you want to be sure that your porch is ready. One of the simplest ways to put that stamp of uniqueness on your porch is with a welcome mat. Take a look at these 10 personalized door mats and see which will add the most to your front porch.

DIY wood doormat

Many porches don’t house a welcome mat because of how little time it looks nice. Creating a wooden doormat like this one will give your entry that little bit of flair while being easy to clean when the mud gets too thick. (via The Merrythought)

Ribbon welcome mat

Spruce up a doormat you already have with some ribbon and glue! This will be especially effective during the holidays. I can just imagine “Gather” or “Rejoice” scrawled across the doorstep. (via Alyssa and Carla)

Stenciled welcome mat

Some doormats are just in need of a good stencil, don’t you think? I especially like how this one is divided. See if you can create your own city on your front stoop! It will be the reigning porch piece as long as it lasts. (via The Surznick Common Room)

Donut welcome mat

When you live in a place that is constantly warm, it takes a little extra somethin’ to make the holidays feel special. Brighten up your porch with a sprinkle laden donut this Thanksgiving. Your guests will be smiling before you open the door. (via The House that Lars Built)

Duel greeting welcome mat

Aren’t these duel message doormats fun? They’re rather expensive to buy but with some paint and tape, you can easily make one yourself in whatever language you prefer. (via Bumblebree Blog)

Rope wood welcome mat

So maybe you’re loving the wooden doormat above but your woodworking skills aren’t so fantastic. Try this one instead! All you need to do is drill holes in your wooden slats and tie a rope in knots. Anybody can make that. You’ll enjoy it so much, I’ll bet you’ll make one for the front door and the back. (via Domestic Imperfection)

DIY geo welcome mat

When it’s geometric, you can’t go wrong. Use up all your little cans of bright paint samples on a doorstop like this. Just tape in your favorite geo pattern and then use your brushes to paint away. You can even get the kids in on this one. (via The Crafted Life)

Geeky welcome mat

Computer geeks, like my husband, will laugh at this one. That’s why choosing an unconventional yet humorous doormat is definitely appropriate for the holidays when you have multitudes of people going in and out. (via Brit + Co)

House numbers welcome mat

We’ve put house numbers on pumpkins and Christmas trees and flower pots and even the front door itself. So why not put your house numbers on your doormat? It certainly makes a statement right at the front door. (via Adventures in the Anderl House)

House welcome mat

This doormat has to be my favorite. House shaped decor is in style because it’s so simple and family friendly. While the outline of this house is wonderful by itself, you can certainly use stencils or ribbon to put a word or phrase on it if you think it’s too plain for you. (via Little White Whale)
