Vintage Wall Hanging Using Scrap Wood or Pallet Boards

7 Materials
2 Hours

Here is a Vintage Wall Hanging with a flower pocket that I recently made. The greenery can be changed out with the season's and holidays. I originally planned on putting it on my porch but I want to admire it for a bit in my living room! Check out how I put it together.

These are the materials I used, plus some pallet boards!

Here are the pallet boards I used. Depending on how long you want them you may not need to cut them.

I attached the boards together on the back using 3 scrap pieces.

Then I placed some vinyl letters on.

Then it was time for the paint. I used Miss Mustard seeds milk paint. I love the rustic look!

Next, attach your pocket. I used some burlap and lace.

Hammer in tacks. I suggest giving yourself a little more bulk so you have room for your greenery.

Then I painted on the stencil I wanted.

And it's finished, it looks so lovely!

I think it looks great in my living room, I may never want to move it.

    Can you cover a lamp shade that the lamp will be on for hours?

      Hi Judy. Depends on what you mean by cover. Are you planning to drape something over the top of the shade? Like a hanky or piece of lace? Then only if you use a very low wattage of a bulb, like a 15 watt. Otherwise the heat from the bulb may start a fire! If you mean like recovering a shade without taking the old covering off, yes you can. Use a very lightweight fabric so the light can shine through. Anything heavy or opaque will only allow light to shine thru the top an d bottom of the shade. Good luck with your lamp!
