DIY Fall Sign Using a Pallet Board

Supplies:

  • Pallet board
  • Paint with brush (one color for the background and one color for the wording)
  • Sealer or cream wax
  • Vinyl or a stencil
  • Copper-plated hanging tape
  • Upholstery nails

Start by cutting the pallet board to the desired length and giving it a thorough sanding. I like to start with 80 grit sandpaper, then follow with 120 and 220 grits.

Use the paint of your choice and dry-brush it on the board.

The wording can be applied by tracing over words on a piece of regular copy paper over graphite transfer paper, by cutting a stencil, or by using a vinyl cutter. I have a Silhouette Cameo and used it to cut out the word “thankful”.

Paint the wording in the color of your choice and let the paint dry. I used a grey craft paint.

Once the paint is dry, seal the paint. I used cream wax and just applied one coat.

Cut the hanging tape to the desired length and secure to the board using upholstery nails. (The hanging tape can be found in the plumbing aisle of the hardware store.) The tape can be cut with wire snippers or just bent back and forth until it breaks. It can be straightened out with a hammer! The tape would also look really cool around the entire outside edge of the board!

Add a hanger to the back, if desired. (I normally use a soda can tab with a screw and a washer!) The board can also be displayed on a cabinet using an easel.
