Wood Pallet Decorations

You've probably noticed how popular the wood pallet decor is. It fits really well with the hot "farmhouse" trend, but it also goes well with any decor. We're not asking you to go out to the barn and start taking apart some old pallets you've been saving for a future project. We make it easy by having ready-to-decorate pallet boards in several sizes and styles!

Our team of designers made two very easy-to-make decorations. The first one is a beautiful 11.5" already-painted wood pallet board to which they added silver flowers and leaves. They colored them with Tim Holtz alcohol inks in these colors: Bottle, Sunshine, Yellow and Espresso. It gave it a sunflower look. They finished it up by attaching the metal pieces with a foam board, hot glue and E6000 to the pallet board.
