EASY DIY Pallet Art

5 Materials
I have seen pallet art all over online stores. BUT paying $50-100 wasn’t in my budget. Ummm…no thanks. I KNEW I could create my own.
I have a friend that is helping build a local hospital. He was more than glad to bring me a few pallets. He brought me 4 HUGE pallets. I think I can probably get at least 3 more projects out of them.
TIP: If you don't have a vice to hold your wood pieces together, try this...
To attach the pieces together I used wood glue. SUPER easy. I used duct tape to keep them close together, since I don’t have a vice. (I guess that is next on my list, right?)
It didn’t take long for the wood to adhere and dry. I was then ready to being painting. Using Lamp White Paint I dry brushed the paint on the rough pallet.
Using a plate and pencil I drew a circle.
I thought it would be fun to create a free-hand wreath. I used a fine point paint brush and started to make small and large leaves. Both inside and outside of the circle.
For added color, I made VERY simple flowers.

    Love pallet projects but how on earth do you disassemble the pallets? They are put together very well and we don't have a sawsall.
