DIY Home Decor: Pallet Sign

Time to share another quick project I did for our baby girls nursery.

I’m that person who goes to the store and stares at things for a long period of time… and leave with nothing. Which drive my boys Crazy. My son always says “we came here and bought nothing ?”  Lol

I always end up trying to make something myself!!

So I ended up making a fun sign to hang on the wall using the paint colors from her room!


So the wood I used was not actually pallet. We just moved to a new house and put up a 6ft fence for our dogs and we ended up with extra panels!

Matthew pulled one apart for me, I then cut, cleaned,  and sanded.

Painted it white. Let it dry. Then stenciled   “Follow your” with the pink I used for the baby nursery!

I didn’t want to just write out “Arrow” so I ended up with painting a Arrow…

I already had a stencil I made,  cut out of cardboard that I just had to trace. On my white painted  piece of wood.

I taped off the point of the arrow and the two longest lines to paint. Then ended up painting the rest with a smaller brush, tracing the lines.


And the arrow is painted!!

To finish it off, I brushed glue around the outline of the arrow, and covered it with glitter.

I then finished both pieces with clear coat  to keep the glitter from falling all over.

 


“Follow Your Arrow”

Now to just hang them up after I finish another project I’m working on for  this same wall!! ❤


And  They found their Place on the Wall!!

We Also Made the TeePees!!  A Few More post coming soon!! =)

DIY Kids Coloring and Art Display Sign Made With Pallets

As we’re getting closer to move in date, we are working on Project after project!  While Matt was doing the  Cutting And Building  of the Kids Desk I had him make, Me And Ayden get to work on the little fun stuff  to decorate their playroom!! Okay, Okay, He helps me with the Basic Stuff, And then he leaves me Hanging  to Help Daddy, Because let’s get real, as soon as the use of Tools are done, he loses Interest.Ha!

So this time, we made a quick  Sign out of Pallets that were already cleaned and cut from a previous project!

Supplies used:

Pallets

White Paint  : We have tons of white paint

Letter Stencils

Stencils Sponges: These are my favorite for Stenciling

Acrylic Paint


So We started with the Pieces of wood I already had!

I laid them how I wanted, The front of the sign Facing Down. On the back I put a thin square flat piece of wood so Ayden And I  can drill screws to hold them all together. You can also use wood Glue for this part if you don’t want to do any drilling!

These were fairly new Pallets, But They were already cleaned and then cut to use for the Kids Desk! All I had to do was sand it a little bit with the Sander!

Ayden And I painted it white, let it dry, and it was ready for some Stenciling! Unfortunately, this was the point Ayden left me Hanging. Daddy was done with the power Saw and starting to put the  Desk together, So He was a Goner When  It came down to Stenciling or Drilling!

Here I was Just a couple letters away from  being DONE! DIY KIDS PALLET stenciling

If you haven’t stenciled before , you might want to taped the letters down. I put  a little drop of paint in my tupperware, dip my sponge in it, and dab it around the tupperware like 5 or 6 times before I put it on the Board! Make sure you pick it straight up and put it straight down! diy kids coloring and art display made with pallets 4

The Words are all Stenciled…..

And it is DONE!  This Pallet Sign Was Super Fast and Simple! I got some  Clothes Pins, Painted them Black  and Glued them On! Right now I just hung it on our Family room wall to take a picture.  I plan to put this in the Kids New Playroom  Over the Desk when  we move into the New House!
