Colorful DIY Pallet Wall Art Tutorial
The FolkArt ® Ultra Dye™ Colors are uniquely suited to DIY pallet projects like this. The dye colors are self-sealing and will not flake, bleed, or rub off. That gives them a big advantage over paint, especially for an ombre design. You can rest assured that it won't turn into a monochrome mess.
If you're interested in staining wood pallets for an art project, then these materials are a great way to go.
Apply the Liquid Stencil Adhesive to the backside of the Trellis wall stencil. Allow to dry until it is tacky to the touch. Position the stencil with adhesive side down onto the bottom of pallet; press in place creating a tight bond.
Pour both Venom and Tantalizing Teal into foam bowls.
Load the stencil brush with Tantalizing Teal by dipping the bristles into the bowl of dye. Blot the loaded brush onto paper towels to remove excess dye creating a dry brush.
Begin stenciling Tantalizing Teal at the pallet base moving upwards towards the middle of the pallet. Lift to remove the stencil, then reposition it as needed.
Approximately half the length of the pallet, begin adding Venom allowing it to blend softly with Tantalizing Teal.
Continue stenciling towards the top of the pallet design ending solid Venom. Allow to dry.
If desired, apply a coat of FolkArt Ultra Dye Satin Varnish to seal and protect the dyed wood pallet. Allow to dry and completely cure before using.

It is amazing to me how some creative people can take an item that will eventually wind up in a landfill if not rescued and re-purpose it for something wonderful like this. Even if you lack painting skills, this project utilizes stencils.

What a wonderful idea and use for those pallets that are found for free in a lot of places. Weather you elect to use a whole pallet or cut it to a special size this is a great up-cycle project.

I am starting to love palette wall arts. But would probably have problems with cutting woods and painting.

This is the sort of project my mom would love! I love the look of this pallet art, but I am not sure I have a place that would be a good fit for it in my home. Think how heavy it must be! I have a pallet we received as a wedding present, and I have yet to hang it on the wall because I am afraid it will fall off if something happens.

These pallets are beautiful! I definitely like the idea of stencils, because I do not trust my free-hand! Awesome!

I'm IN LOVE with this project! There's something about the fancy scalloped design on the rustic pallet. It just looks fabulous.
