Pallet Art






So I've clearly been on a pallet art kick!  I've gone up to my local hardware store to ask for old pallets they were looking to get rid of.  A Free Project!  I love the warn out look of old wood!  

So the map project I made for my son's room.  I did have to print the map out on four different pieces of paper just get the size large enough.  I also had to do this one by hand.  After painting the whole thing blue and cutting out my shape, I used a black sharpie to trace it.  I than painted the map white by hand.  Would have been a lot easier as a stencil that I could have spray painted, but I don't have a Silhouette Machine yet!  Maybe for Christmas!  
So the white Love sign, was pretty simple.  I just put the pallet boards together, nailed some letters,  (just from your local craft store), and painted over whole thing in white! 
As for the yellow heart love sign, this one was pretty simple as well.  I simply put my boards together, used a big piece of wrapping paper to create a heart stencil, and added the word love at the end.  It now hangs above our bed!

Feel free to order your own pallet already done online at my etsy shop!
