Painting a Mouse Hole on the Wall

I may have mentioned that I’m kind of a Pinterest junkie.  A friend of mine introduced me to it several months ago, and one of the first things I ever re-pinned was an awesome decal she had found online.  I’ve long been wanting to put it on my own wall, but I thought it would be really cool to turn it into more of an arts and crafts project.  It was certainly a lot less expensive than buying the awesome original, but it did require some work on my part.  My painting ability is not compatible with my perfectionist tendencies, so this took longer than I would have expected.

Of course, another friend of mine saw what I had done and turned around and just drew one on her wall with a Sharpie in about 20 minutes, and it looked great.  Go figure.

What you need to paint a mouse hole on the wall:

  • Black paint (we used acrylic)
  • Two craft paintbrushes (I used one that was fairly wide and one that was very fine)
  • Piece of paper to create a template
