Mini-Pallet Fall Art

Posted by on September 26, 2011 in crafty, projects | 82 comments

Ok, so I jumped on the pallet bandwagon. I didn’t want to, but I couldn’t help myself. They had these little mini-pallet type things at Home Depot and they were only $6! Now, I’m sure you think everything’s cheaper in Mexico…it’s not. Almost everything is more expensive. So, finding a crafty project for under $10 is a MIRACLE! I saw this and knew I had to do something with it.


I just wasn’t sure what. There have been so many great palette ideas recently online…so here is my creation with the inspiration of many others:

from Young and Crafty


from Martha Stewart 



Here’s the step-by-step:

First I painted the slats with different fall toned colors.

Then I drew out an outline of a branch with a white pencil.

I cut out fall leaves using my Silhouette SD and traced them onto the wood.

Then I filled in the branch and leaves.

Pretty easy, right? I just wish I had a mantel to put it on…it’s pretty heavy to hang on our crazy concrete walls…

  6. Beautiful! Love this idea and the colors you used — I like that this could be used for ANY holiday or season simply by using different colors and stencils!

    • Thanks, Lauren! I was so happy with how it turned out. Sadly, I had to leave it in Mexico when we moved back to the States…we didn’t have room for that massive piece of art. I’m planning on making a new one as fall approaches.

  7. Hi Paige, that was quite an undertaking and it turned out very well. I hope that you found a home for it after all the hard work you put into it. I bet it gave you the bug to do more artwork. I recently found your blog and am now following. Please pop on over to my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me. I would really like that. Hugs, Chris
