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!

 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!

    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.
