Starting with a plain doormat, Jennifer grabbed a few more supplies—some Tulip Soft Fabric Paint, fabric markers and Embroidered Effects: Projects and Patterns to Inspire Your Stitching by Jenny Hart—and got to work using the adorable stitching designs as tracing templates for a cute pattern. Already simple enough for embroidery work, the templates make an excellent choice when converting them for use for painting.
Mixing and matching designs, she came up with a simple but effective bird and cage arrangement, along with a friendly welcoming greeting! Staring down at our own naked door step, we can't help but feel this craft idea would be a perfect little project to complete quickly.

We totally love all the stuff Jennifer Perkins does and this is hardly the first time we've posted about her. Want more? How about a house tour, a nursery tour and even another crafty how-to (this time for the backyard).
