Pallet Sign

There are so many adorable and creative ideas out there for pallet signs!

Our garage was home to several pallets that I had saved from different deliveries for just this purpose. I was planning to make a special sign for my mom and step-dad. Simple and rustic, with an inspiring message.

My husband helped me maneuver the sawz-all to cut the pallet apart. We used the demolition blade and cut right through the nails. There are many ways to deconstruct a pallet, but this worked for us. (I don’t recommend doing this in shorts and bare feet, by the way…) ๐Ÿ™‚ Go, Babe!IMG_2783

After the pallet was deconstructed, I nailed 6 horizontal boards to 2 vertical boards.

IMG_2795With a stencil, I traced the words lightly in pencil to make sure there was room for each phrase on each of the boards. Then I got out my paint and small sponge brush.

IMG_2796Some of the wordsย would be a different color, so I left those for last.

Here’s the finished product. Once again, not perfect, but perfectly imperfect and made with love. ย ๐Ÿ™‚ย IMG_2798

    Looks great!! I’ve never stenciled before but always wanted to. Any tips? It seems like it would take a long time to do any amount of text (like a verse in a picture frame, etc.).

  2. I would definitely say that a smaller brush works best. I’ve also seen people trace the outline of the letter in pencil and then fill it in. I think the size of your stencil makes a difference too.
