Instructions

Step 1

Download the stencil. Cut out the tire marks and trace onto two pieces of green sign material. Cut out stencils.

Step 2

Decide where on the wall you want the border to be. Tape the stencil to the wall at the correct height.

Step 3

Using a sponge brush, fill in the stencil with black paint. Don't worry about perfect even coverage; some uneven spots help this stenciled border look like the real thing.

Step 4

Remove the stencil. Tape your next stencil so that the pattern is even, level, and continues unbroken. This is easiest to do if you use a level with the stencil.
