  1. Using a combination of a large brush and stencil brush, paint a freehand drip border design using Creeping Jenny paint along the top of the door mat as shown. The stencil brush will allow the paint to get into the material; let dry completely.

  2. Using the San Serif Alphabet Stencils, compile letters that spell out the phrase "Creep It Real." Center the phrase horizontally on the doormat, then use stencil tape to secure first few letters in place.

  3. Apply Beetle Black paint over the stencils using a stencil brush; let dry. Continue to stencil the rest of the phrase with remaining letters.
