Scotch Blue tape worked like a charm for really well sealed lines.
Once it was all taped off, I had to cover the rest of the rug. I had a pile of old circulars around, and they did the trick!
It was a tad windy, so the hubs helped by holding up a piece of foam core (we had used it as a target at Kira's Brave Party) so the spray paint wouldn't get all over the rug.
Because of the wind, some of the paper lifted and I had some bleeding. Thankfully, soap and water removed it all and I was left with crisp lines.
For the second rug, I was excited to use our new Silhouette Cameo. I wanted to write the word shoes nice and large so that my crazy kids just might happen to remember to put them away! So far it's working!
For this rug, I wanted to have the letters be negative space, so I taped off the area to be painted and then used spray adhesive to attach the letters to the rug.
I used the same method of covering up the rest of the rug so that I could spray paint it.
I was so excited to see how crisp the letters turned out!
