Hey there! I’m so excited to share my first DIY fall decor project today! It’s been a little hard to get into the fall spirit this year with our near 100 degree temps but I finally got the itch!
Here’s how I made it!
I purchased 2 – 1×3′s @ 10 ft. long (you can buy furring strips for this project to save money) and I cut 16 pieces at 14″. If you don’t have a saw you can purchase this hand saw and miter box below for this project. It’s a great saw for little projects like this
I used Gorilla Glue Wood Glue and my Ryobi Airstrike with 5/8″ brad nails to attach shims to the back of 4 boards to form the pallets.
While the stain dried, I got busy working on the letters!
I sprayed 2-coats of Rust-oleum Chalkboard spray paint on each letter.
While I was waiting for the spray paint to dry, I used my Ryobi Corner Cat to distress the pallets. I distressed all over, front, sides and edges.
Now for some cuteness
I then used hot glue to attach a burlap rosette on top of the knot and I snipped the extra raffia, with scissors, about an inch from the knot. You can click HERE for an easy tutorial to make these rosettes!
I hope you love this as much as I do! If you do, we would appreciate your shares and pins!
