Tractor Tire Tread Stencil or Wallpaper
[Return to Topics]

I want to run an image of a tractor tire tread up the wall in my sons bedroom, either a stencil to paint it on or a wallpaper border/stick-on's. Any ideas where I could purchase one of these?

Don't know of any ready made. You could do like the others have stated. Or if you want the actual big tire tread size, you could make your own stencil. Just get a tire and put something on the bars to transfer to poster paper or cardboard. Paint, oil, grease, something like that. Just lay the paper over the tread. Pull it off and cut out the spots!

Easy. All one needs is a really large roller pan, some black paint, and a suitable tire...

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I have a neighbor that has sold "art" made like that. used different colored paint and rolls the tractor tire back and forth. i think drugs are probably involved somehow.

"...i think drugs are probably involved somehow... "

I see a LOT of "art" that that would explain...

That is NOT as silly as you thought it was when you wrote it!

There were many Ag Tire Ashtrays made as promotional items in the past and you could easily pop the glass insert out, cut a circular piece of wood to fill the 'tire', drill a hole for a dowel, roll the tire in paint and have at that wall! can head out to the sandbox and find the most aggressive tread on one of his Tonkas and use that...

I got to thinking about that, and remembered the bar-tread tires on my Troybilt tiller. No reason they wouldn't work...

Why sure, that'll work good! Just run that tiller throught the pan of paint then right up the wall. It might get a little heavy up by the ceiling, though.
