  • Acrylic paint
  • iCraft® Deco Foil™ Foam Adhesive Sheets
  • iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets: Pink Melon, Gold, Teal

Step-by-Step Instructions

  2. Plan wording at desired size. Die cut necessary letters from Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheets.

  3. Using photo as guide, separate words into groups by desired color. For example, LOVE is Pink Melon, LIVE is Teal and remaining words are Gold. Be sure no letters are reversed.

  4. Remove paper liner from front of first foam letter.

  5. Place foam letters, sticky side down, onto back of desired Deco Foil Transfer Sheet. Be sure letters do not touch as adhesive is very strong.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I absolutely adore this idea because it is so simple to make. My favorite part is that you can customize this artwork to say whatever you want. You can add your own decorations or just leave it plain depending on the design you want. Great idea for scraps or just someone who wants to stay busy.

This is a very trendy project and I have seen similar items in the store, but how much better to make your own with just the right words for you and your family! You can get the deco foil at the hobby shops or even online. I prefer a more finished look than the Roch pallet wood, so,I would opt to,either sand and stain, or even paint the wood in a color that would enhance the foil letters ... This would make a great housewarming gift or wedding present.... super idea!

Since I saw wooden palettes as decoration at my friends home, I think I fall in love with them. So glad I ran into this DIY wooden palette. I love the looks of this palette. The foil letters look very attractive on the wooden palette, and looks simple to do. But same as msdeb21, Im not familiar with deco foil and would love to know where to buy them. Thanks!

I am not familiar with this ICraft Deco Foil, but I love the look of pink and teal and gold on the wood pallet background. It would be fun deciding which words or phrases to use. Is this foil sold at craft retailers in the scrapbooking sections, or is it a specialty item?
