This huge pallet wreath sign was first seen over at Craftaholics Anonymous.
Annnd it was is so simple to put together. Let’s get started!
- 1x6 (cut into four 24 inch pieces)
- wood screws
- 2 contrasting chalky finish paint colors (I used a peachy red & a cream color.)
- vinyl stencil- I used this image from (affiliate link) Silhouette.
- roller & foam paint brushes
- Mod Podge
- hand sander &sand paper
- crème wax
- X-ACTO knife
First, I painted my boards the color I wanted the wreath to be. Note: The boards are all loose at this point. I haven't screwed them together just yet.
I laid my boards out on the floor exactly how I wanted them to be. Then I carefully applied my vinyl stencil right on top. I was careful not to shift my boards. Tip: To make a stencil this big I actually cut it out in two sections & then lined them up together.
Next, I used an X-ACTO knife to cut the vinyl stencil apart where the boards met.
Next, I applied a layer of Mod Podge. Then let dry. This will help seal the edges of the stencil so that no paint seeps underneath when I paint over the stencil.
Next, I painted the cream color right over the top of my stencil. I did two coats. Let it dry slightly (not all the way). Then I removed my stencil leaving the wreath behind.
Next, it was time to assemble my pallet sign. I used some wood scraps & screws on the back of my sign to hold it all together. Then I gave the front of the sign a light distressing with my sander.
The last thing I did was give my whole sign a light coat of dark creme wax. I rubbed most of it off with an old rag. Let dry.
Let me know if you try to make your own huge pallet wreath. I’d love to hear how it turns out. :)
