Triforce Welcome Mat

 What you'll need:
  • Plain Welcome Mat
  • Paper, Cardboard, (or anything you can cut a stencil out of)
  • Yellow Acrylic Paint
  • Sponge Brush or Paint Brush 
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
How you'll do it:
  1. Acquire a plain door mat like this one
  2. Use your ruler to measure equal sides of the triangles to create the perfect triforce (it helps to trace it with pencil before you cut.)
  3. Dip your paintbrush in your paint and carefully fill in your stencil. 
  4. Repeat this process until you cover the entire mat. 
  5. Once dry, add another coat for a bolder color.

All the other welcome mats will be jealous. Not to mention your friends.

Zelda Hearts Cork Board

What you'll need:
  • Red and Black Acrylic Paint
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Cork Board
  • Paintbrush
How you'll do it:
  1. Use your ruler to measure out a 1 inch square grid.
  2. Carefully cut out your hearts with scissors. 
  3. Paint the squares around the edges with the black paint, and fill in the middle with red.
  4. After the first coat dries, apply a second coat for a bolder color. 

These are definitely a great way to spice up a room! Scale them down and you can even use them as coasters!

Triforce Pillow

What you'll need:
How you'll do it:
  1. Cut out 3 equal triangles from your gold/yellow fabric.
  2. Place the iron-on adhesive strips between the yellow and green fabric.
  3. Apply heat and pressure with your iron until the fabrics are bonded together.
  4. Enjoy your new decoration!

This one is perhaps one of the easier DIYs. If sewing is more compelling for you than ironing, you could easily sew the triangles instead. If you're feeling really adventurous you can sew the entire pillow and stuff it yourself!
