It’s easy to show your pride or cheer on holiday with these Themed Painted Pallets. I get pallets from a friend, and I paint them with either patriotic themes or sports teams. I also add ethnic titles such as Italian or Mexican but can do any or all. It’s basically just a fun hobby for me.
Make your own Themed Painted Pallets:
Start with a pallet and either cut it into pieces for several smaller painted pallets or use it whole for one theme. Next, remove any boards you don’t need, such as the rear deck boards. They add weight and can be distracting. Paint the pallet either as a solid background or paint the slats differently – such as with a flag theme. Next, have some fun. You can use stencils to create the theme words you want, or you can buy pre-cut wood letters. Additionally, you can use the stencils to trace the shapes onto scrap boards and cut your own letters out. Apply any decorative touches, such as the bow tie on the snowman, or create a team logo. For crisp lines, use masking tape and pre-sand your surfaces, so it’ll adhere better. Then, display your creation with pride and cheer your team, your heritage, or a holiday!
