Hello! It's Jennifer and I'm back to share another awesome new release! The Medium DIY Wood Pallet Shapes are so fun to work with and I was so excited to see new home decor pieces! For my project, I used the Rectangle Medium DIY Pallet Shape. I wanted to give it a stained look so I took brown acrylic paint and added a bit of water to it. All I needed was one coat as the birch wood accepts the paint very nicely.
After allowing my paint to dry, I secured the new Family Farmhouse 6x16 Stencil to my pallet with painters tape. Washi tape works well, too! There are 20 new designs including this one! And the possibilities are endless when it comes to DIY home decor projects!
I then slowly applied modeling paste with a spatula. I found it was best to take my time to prevent any bleeding underneath my stencil. And I am not the mixed media maven I strive to be LOL
Here, you can see a close up of some of the stenciling. Again, not perfect but its a process of learning.
I had some metal clips in my stash that I attached at the bottom of the pallet with my hot glue gun
While my hot glue gun was plugged in, I added flowers to the corners of my pallet to accent. Its a great way to use up some of your stash (I know for myself I hoard things LOL)
I then added some fun family photos from the past Mother's Day! My kids are at that age where they never want to take a serious photo! I always tell them no matter what they will still be scrapbooked! Lastly, I used my Big Bite to punch holes in the top of the pallet so I could hang my creation!
Thank you for reading today! Be sure to check out all of the new release by visiting the Clear Scraps shop! Have a great day!
