I spent most of this past Saturday cleaning out my craft room. Over the busy months of the holiday season it had because a catch all for all the extra clutter or any supplies I had used for projects were haphazardly thrown on a shelf. I couldn’t find a thing much less get in the room. This month’s Craft Room Destash Challenge could not have come at a better time. For this month’s challenge I used what I uncovered in the mess of the room and made a small inspirational wood pallet sign.

One of the things I found while cleaning out my craft room was this small, 6″ x 6″ wood pallet I purchased at Hobby Lobby more than a year ago. I thought it was adorable so I bought it for only $2.99. Then of course I had no idea what to do with it. I still didn’t have a clue what to do with it this weekend when I found it but it was the first thing to come to my mind when I remembered that the Craft Destash Challenge was also this week.
Browsing through Pinterest and some other websites I came across this verse of scripture that just spoke to me and how I feel about my goals for 2018. I knew it was the right inspiration to add to the wood pallet sign. I printed out the verse and used the printout as a template for the lettering.
Small Inspirational Wood Pallet Sign
For this project you will need
- 6″ x 6″ Wood Pallet
- Small thin tipped craft brush
- Black Acrylic Paint
- Printer and paper
- Colored Chalk
- Fine Tipped Sharpie Marker
I used a technique I have used several times before to make a wood sign is that I first cover the back of the printout with colored chalk and then place it on top of the wood sign and trace the letters. Tracing the letters leaves a small chalk imprint on the wood. It was then a matter of using a very small craft brush and black paint to fill in the letters.
I also used a fine tip blue Sharpie to write the verse reference below the scripture just to give it a bit of color.
I hung the small sign below my bath vanity cabinets. This adorable little sign will be a reminder and a challenge to me each morning.
