I am happy to be here with the Thrifty Style Team today, and I am really excited to show you How To Make a Rustic Pallet Sign.
It just takes a few components with some creativity and you are ready to go.
How To Make a Rustic Pallet Sign…
you will need:
wood glue or gorilla glue
paint (color of your choice)
I should mention that I had each of these components in my craft cupboard, so this is a NO COST project. How is that for thrifty?
I really lucked out. My friend that is helping build a hospital in our town had more pallets than he could ever want. He brought me FOUR full pallets. More than I could ever use. BUT, I liked choosing the most rustic pieces for my pallet sign. Look at those rusty nails! That is my love language!
I sanded all the sides to alleviate the chance of getting splinters.
Since my pallet pieces were to short for what I wanted, I used wood glue to adhere them together. Some of you might use a staple gun or nail gun, if you like.
While the wood glue was drying, I picked out the colors I MIGHT use on my rustic pallet sign.
Once the glue was dry, I was ready to stencil my wording. I used a vintage style font to fit the style of our home.
When the paint was dry, I sanded the letters a little for a vintage/worn vibe.
I wrapped wire around each end of the “sign”, leaving it long enough for a loop hanger.
Our condo is less than 900 square feet. I like to decorate each room with a cottage feel, along with thrifted and/or vintage pieces.
“our desert cottage” sign is just the rustic touch our condo cottage needed. It’s fun, unexpected and adds texture to our little condo cottage.
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial on How To Make a Rustic Pallet Sign.
I would love to hear about your own pallet sign and what it would say. Do you have any ideas?
