Hello friends! Happy Friday to you! It's officially the Christmas season here in the US now that Thanksgiving is over. Today I am sharing a holiday home decor project I created along with an easy tutorial! The new Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape is the perfect size to use the 4x6 Stencils!
I began by painting my pallet with chalk paint in a dark red color. I found I only needed one coat as the birch wood helps the paint go on smoothly. You will also find that the chalk paint dries quickly.
I then took a small amount of Color Shift paint in black to paint the top of the pallet. For this portion, I did apply two coats as I painted over the red.
I secured the Comfort & Joy 4x6 Stencil to my pallet with washi tape. I then applied glitter gel in silver across the stencil. I found that sweeping a foam brush over the top of the stencil after the application helped to smooth out any bumps.
Here is a close up of the end result! I do like how it turned out but it was definitely a learning curve; especially since this was the first time I had used the glitter gel. (I also found that the glitter gel takes extra drying time).
Lastly, I used a hole punch on either sides of the top and pulled twine through to create a way to hang my pallet. I then added a small swag of ribbon and a rustic bell to accent.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! Be sure to check out all the DIY Pallet Shapes by visiting the Clear Scraps shop! Have a great day!
