How To Make An Incredible DIY River Rock Doormat

River Rock Doormat

Here’s the coolest doormat ever, and you can easily make one yourself! This is a great idea whether you need a mat for your enclosed porch or bathroom.

River rocks are found on beaches and in stream beds. They come in a variety of sizes, colors, and textures. The rocks have many common applications. People use them for landscaping, decorative ground covers, and construction material.

This composite nature of river rock produces a huge variance in the coloration of rocks. Their hues range from gray and black to white to the more stunning green, purple, and russet.

What are the materials needed to make a River Rock Doormat?

But what’s great about this rock doormat is that water evaporates fast (depending on the materials that you use), preventing odor from building up. It’s also easier to clean as opposed to fabric doormats — simply wash it using a water hose and the dirt would be gone!

Could your home use a river rock doormat?

You’ll need these materials:

  • A Roll of Flexible Shelf Liner (or a Plastic Mesh with rubber pads for bathroom use)
  • River Rocks
  • Adhesive (make sure to use a suitable one depending on the purpose of your mat)
  • Plastic Drop Cloth

And this tool:

  • Cutter
