    Build the wood backdrop, sand it good with an electric sander. Then draw out your design with a pencil - stain (ebony color) the area outside of your design. Then put a clear poly finish on top over the entire wood frame.

    This looks like a reverse etching. Could try taping off the entire back drop, then cut the design into the tape, remove the tape from your "picture". Then use a bleach or a sander or even wood burn your design. Then remove the rest of the tape or stencil. I like the idea.

      This is really work intensive but if you have any drawing talent (most people don't) it could work

    My mother used this product on water color paintings . They probably have it in art stores everywhere. It is a thin rubbery stuff that you could paint the tree with it it's clear or white. Then stain the wood. Then you would peel it all off. Do a little touch up. Oh you should let it dry before staining. This was a few years ago so check it out. I am sure it has been improved a lot. Check lowes and home depot

    You could also use contact paper, apply it to the pallet wood, draw out the design and cut the stencil with an XACTO knife, either leave the tree part covered and stain the open background darker with water base stain, or reverse and do the open tree with white latex primer mixed with clear water base polyurethane, you would have to experiment to get the light color stain you desire on scrap or the back of the pallet. Just be careful to burnish the contact paper down on the well sanded, clean pallet, then go over it with a hair dryer to really get it to stick. Remove the contact paper after the stain is dry to the touch, don't let it sit very long. Once you have the design & background finished & contact paper removed, clear coat the whole thing.

    If you could copy this picture on your copier and print on a transparency sheet, I would then use an old projector and trace it on the boards -- probably using a white pencil or something that would show up on the wood. If you need to stain the wood, I would use a mixture of steel wood and vinegar. See utube for recipes for that.
