Who loves pallet d├ęcor?

I’m loving all of the pallet art out there lately and I knew what I wanted to create…a mini pallet art project. I wanted something I could use as a gift, small decoration on an end table, something in my daughters room, etc.

Let me show you how I made these…so simple and fun!

Step 1. Cut the round edges off the popsicle sticks with a sturdy pair of scissors.

Step 2. Place them on a small canvas (mine was a 6x8 size) or a piece of foam board would work great, too.

Step 3. Glue them onto your canvas.

Step 4. Decorate. The possiblities are endless on this!! First, I put on a layer of paint, then I stenciled a design, sanded the whole thing, and put a vinyl word onto it.

Step 5. Use Mod Podge over your finished product to give it that extra coating.

Step 6. Embellish. I tied some raffia at the top…you could use whatever ribbon or embellishment you’d like. Go nuts!

I was so happy with how they turned out and I can’t wait to make more!
