Car or tire themed party decoration ideasItems Needed:

Old tire, black paint, roll of craft paper.

I rolled out the craft paper, set the tire on one end, used a baby wipe to dip into the paint, and smeared the tire treads with black paint. Then I gently pushed down on the tire as I rolled it down the paper. It worked great!

After the paper dried, I was able to cut some very cool banners/streamers out of the tire tracks, along with set a table using the paper as a tablecloth.
