    IMO trying to make your own wallpaper border would not be a cost effective project. In this case 'home made' quality can not compete with the strength and durability of pre-purchased. Have you checked at or for availability of the design you are seeking?

    Go to a paint store that sells wallpaper that carries books to order from. There are fewer than say 10 years age but still 100s out there. Look at Waverly, Schumacher, Seabrook, Ronald Redding brands to name a few. You can also go on line and search for borders. Some will send you cuttings for color.

    Hi ! Try using removable wallpaper ! Using an xacto knife cut the wallpaper to your liking and peel the backing off and apply . There are some awesome prints out there check out sites like or good luck !

    I suggest that you find a stencil pattern you like and use that to create your own unique border. Borders and wallpaper popularity come and go. They will probably start to come back again in a few years. Right now they are not a decorating trend so they aren't easy to find.

    The stencil idea has its advantages, even though time consuming,; you can paint over it. If you do this, paint a border top and bottom. Paint the border first, and your stencil placement will be easy.
