How to create a garden tile effect

Looking for a way to wow at your next bbq? We've got you covered with our garden tile effect.


You will need:

  • 2 x 1L tins of your favourite Cuprinol Garden Shades colour
  • MDF cut to your desired splash back size
  • Pencil
  • Stencil Card
  • Chalk
  • Masking Tape

Step 1
Have a strip of MDF cut to your desired splash back size. Paint the MDF with 1-2 coats of Cuprinol Garden Shades Natural Stone and allow to dry.

Step 2
Draw a 16cm square onto stencil card, with a 1cm border inside this square. Draw an intersecting line from corner to corner, creating a cross through the square.

Step 3
Cut out the two opposing triangles and repeat step 2 so that you have one stencil for each colour.

Step 4
Using chalk, mark out a 15 cm squared grid on your dry, painted MDF.

Step 5
Hold your stencil in place with masking tape and use a sponge dipped in Cuprinol Garden Shades Terracotta to dab lightly through the stencil.

Step 6
Gently peel off the masking tape and reposition the stencil to fill in every other tile with the first colour. Allow to dry.

Step 7
Using the second stencil, invert the design and fill in the remaining tiles with Cuprinol Garden Shades Seagrass. Allow to dry before securing your garden tile effect in place.
