1st, you will need a rug (this here, is a used rug I got off FreeCycle). A brush, acrylic paint (dries fast) and stencil or painters tape (straight lines/geometric shapes).
Mind you, I added way more birds than were stains (cause, you know...that would just be gross).
*the rug is about 7'x4'
It had a few stains (nothing paint can't cover up).
A few birds.
A couple more...
What do you think?
I can reuse these stencils. I already have a wall crying out for a few birds (literally, like 3) and maybe some shirts?
*you could also spray paint, but you would need to do this outside (I live in Winter so this was not an option for me) and you will also need to tape-off more (to prevent over spray).
***looking at it, I am not thrilled that I put that lil birdie on the bottom, but there is nothing I can do about it now...except, maybe hide it under the couch.
