Pallet State Love

We are excited to share the tutorial for our Pallet State Love project in collaboration with our talented team of crafters at The Creative Carousel, {more on that in a bit!}

Love this easy diy pallet art! Share the love of your state on pretty pallet art!

But first, the tut!
Everything was on hand either lying around in the garage or from our craft stash… no outta pocket cost.  
Lβ™₯ve that πŸ™‚  

This project is what you get when you combine our pallet EAT sign with our state art:

In case you missed our pallet EAT sign tut 2 years ago {and haven’t seen our bff Katie @ Sweet Rose Studio’s gorgeous pallet love most recently}, read on for the DIY on creating your own.

Let’s get started, shall we? 


1. Lay 4-2×4’s (approx. 14″ long each) flat on the ground.
2.  Grab 2 extra scrap pieces of wood (just long enough to nail onto,) a hammer and a handful (10-12) of nails.
3. Hammer away until the newly created pallet is sturdy.  Easy peasy!

Now to paint:

1. Acrylic paints & foam brush.  2. Brown base coat.  3. Gray top coat.  4. Cut vinyl lettering out, (I designed mine with our vinyl cutter,) and place on pallet where desired. I used the fonts “Cursif” for “home and hearts” and Champagne & Limousines for the other.  5. Lightly brush on paint, (I used 3 colors: state- white, heart- pink and quote- robin egg blue.)  6. Lightly sand if you like the shabby look… I personally love how the brown base coat pulled through.

  2. Adorable! I’m an AZ girl too, I absolutely love this. Where/how did you get your AZ template??

  4. That is adorable. We'll have to have a "state off" when I post my CA project (it is different but state related). Anyway – super cute (and I love that EAT sign too)

  5. So cute! I love what you have decided to do with vinyl lettering!! I can't wait to see how crafty I can be with it. I think I might put it on the windows of my car…what do you think? Good? Tacky? Bad?

  6. Hey Ladies! Too funny. You are the very first link party I attended (and totally messed up the link …) and now here you are at my "impossibilities" link party!
