It doesn't have to be exactly like this one. Our "bee wood" sticks are too short to be the 31" horizontal slats shown. Though I wonder if we made a wider frame, with two 19" sections of horizontal sticks, if that would work.
ok i hope my pic goes through. if your peices arent long enough you could do like my doodle and make the frame with a board down the middle, then your slats go left to middle and another one go middle to right. hope that makes sense.

Out at my dad's ranch he has a couple boot scrapers made out of a horseshoe with a thin piece of metal welded across the opening. Then there's two metal rods welded onto the round part of the shoe so that it can be pushed down into the ground and stay put.
With this specific design, you wouldn't need the rods since the horseshoe could be attached directly to the door mat. Not sure how many horseshoes you guys have laying around but I bet someone in the area would have a bunch of old ones you could get for free possibly
