Spring Palette Art

My Spring Palette Art is keeping up with one of crafting’s biggest trends – palettes!  Just search “wooden palette” on Pinterest – you will get a variety of ideas!  Since, I started paying attention to it in detail, I see left over palettes everywhere!  There were two next to a restaurant we ate at the other night and I have seen several in our neighborhood (lots of new construction).

While making my weekly pilgrimmage to Hobby Lobby, I came across this cute little palette-esque serving tray!  I bought it without any idea how I was going to use it.  (I tend to shop impulsively…lol)  Thankfully, inspiration hit and the Spring Palette Art turned out to be the centerpiece of my Springtime Mantel!

Wanna make your own Spring Palette Art?

Here’s what you need:

Palette (of your choosing)
Silhouette Vinyl
Paint and sponge brush
Glue gun
Silk flowers

 Once again, I began by printing up a vinyl stencil on my Cameo.  Adhering it to the wood was quite difficult.  It didn’t want to stick!  But I made it work.

{This a good picture of what NOT to do.  I ended up moving the stencil slightly to the right after this picture was taken.  Make sure yours doesn’t have bubbles like this one!}
 Then using the sponge brush, I carefully painted the letters.  I ended up doing two coats so it “popped” but not a third because I wanted to be able to see some of the wood.

Let the paint dry before removing the stencil.

Then I hot glued some silk flowers in the corners and TA-DA!

  3. Adorb! I can never keep pallets because my husband always ends up burning them in the firepit before I can get my hands on them. One of these days I’m going to sneaky-steal one and do something hopefully as awesome as this.
