A couple of months back, I showed you how to take a pallet and make it into artwork. I made a Give Thanks sign for the mantel which I love, love, love. From the same pallet, there was enough leftover wood for additional signs. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a sign for the holidays. I dressed it up with some garland and an ornament.
I'm pretty darn happy with how it looks in our hallway.
What do you think?
1. Check out my tutorial on how to disassemble, clean and put the pallet back together to make a sign here.
2. Lay your saying, phrase, quote or design out to make sure you're happy with the layout.
3. Using a removable adhesive (I used glue dots) place the words on the pallet and press. You don't want to have a lot of gaps or the paint will seep through.
4. Using spray paint, lightly start to spray from one corner to the other. It helps to be directly on top so the paint isn't sprayed under any letters that aren't perfectly sticking. Don't worry about creating a heavy coat the first time. Do a light coat, let dry and spray again if needed.
5. Wait until the paint has dried which is pretty quick with spray paint before removing the letters.
6. Securely hang pallet...these suckers are heavy and decorate if needed!
