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…
