Cupcake Medium DIY Pallet Shape
July 08, 2020
Hello everyone! It's Jennifer here today to share a fun little home decor project I created using one of the Medium DIY Pallet Shapes. These are the perfect size for gifts or to display a favorite photo as I did. I'm going to show you how I decorated the Cupcake Medium DIY Pallet Shape and Smile Mini Shaker Shape.
I started by measuring each slat of the pallet so I would know how big to cut the strips of patterned paper. I adhered each with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and then trimmed excess paper with my x-acto knife and healing mat. I then used a sanding tool to smooth any edges. I also covered the chipboard base of the Smile Mini Shaker with patterned paper and repeated the same steps.
I painted the top chipboard frame and the edges of the middle two frames of the shaker with Distress Paint in speckled egg. I set aside to dry to begin to assemble my shaker.
You can see here I adhered the shaker at the bottom of my photo allowing it to hang off the pallet. I added some tiny colored sequin shapes to each letter before adhering the acrylic piece.
I wanted my shaker to be the focal point of the pallet so I added a few die cuts and stickers from the collection I used. You can also spy a few enamel dots to accent.
I used the same blue paint to line the edges of the pallet as well to give it a finished look.
Thank you for reading! Hope this inspires you to do some creating with one of the Clear Scraps DIY Pallet Shapes! Have a great day!
