Pallet Welcome Sign

Today I have a fun DIY/Craft to share with you dolls.

The hubs and I made Pallet Welcome Signs for some friends of ours and I’d love to share the tutorial with you!

First, hubs cut up an old pallet into several similarly sized pieces. We decided three pieces would make a decent sized welcome sign. Next, I cut out some words in vinyl using my Silhouette SD to make some stencils.

I stenciled the words onto the pieces of pallet using the vinyl stencils, a small paint brush and some black acrylic paint.

We let them dry for several hours.

Once they were dry, we took the three stenciled pieces (per sign) and connected them using two Strong-Tie straps purchased from Home Depot, and a few well placed screws.

 You can also see our sign “hanger” in the above photo. The barbed wire was the hubs’ genius idea. Adds to the rustic look, don’t you think?? We simply cut a small piece of barbed wire, bent it to our liking, then screwed each side down on the back of the sign.

So…. What do you think??

Hubs’ was a great help on this one… It would appear he’s got an eye for rustic design. 😉

Have you jumped on the pallet crafting train?? If you have I’d love to see what you made!

  3. Yeah for barbed wire!

  4. OH MY GOSH! I love it!! I hope you wont mind when I copy cat this idea!! It’s super great!! BTW I have a TON of pallet boards, fence boards and post in my back yard. When we moved back home we discovered that the fence Hurricane Ike had blown down was all put in a corner of the back yard. Do you know the AMAZING Donna with Funky Junk Interiors? She’s always trying to get me to send it to her!! I need to start playing around with it and see what I can come up with!

    • Thanks friend!!! Of course, copy away!! :) Can’t wait to see what you make with all that fun stuff!!!!

  5. SO cute! Love the rustic vibe :) I’ve seen so much pallet inspiration on Pinterest but haven’t tried anything yet!

  6. Ohmygosh!!! I love this!! I might actually be able to do it. I’m seriously going to have to go through half of your blog posts once I’m back in the states and decide to get crafty.

  7. Well-written tutorial and an adorable result! We live in a log cabin and this would go perfectly with our rustic decor; I’ll have to get my husband on the job :)
