More easy, DIY Pallet Art ideas

Last week, I shared faux, foam Pallet Art designed by members of the Make It: Fun® team, and today I have more Pallet Art inspiration for you. Each piece is beautifully crafted, and the bloggers share some great tips for making Pallet Art that looks like wood, but is made with sheets of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam and Smooth Finish®. Do you need power tools? Nope. Super-human strength? Nope. A team to hang it? Nope. I hope you’ll page through these tutorials and be as inspired as I am!

If you follow Bev at Flamingo Toes, you know she has the sweetest, vintage style. It’s no surprise that her “Thankful” Pallet Art does, too. She chose a soft yellow paint, and Bev shares her dry brushing technique that gives it an antique look. I love the fabric accent, too.

Beautiful Pallet Art! I love the soft yellow and fabric accent. From Bev at Flamingo Toes.

Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline intends to use her Pallet Art as a message center. Because it’s made from foam and not wood, switching out the messages and photos will be a snap. The burlap banner really dresses it up, don’t you think?

The burlap garland is darling on this Pallet Art. It's made from foam boards (really!), so it's easy to pin on photos and such. From Mary Beth at Cupcakes and Crinoline.

I “believe” that Stephanie Lynn always makes the prettiest projects, like her holiday Pallet Art. Check out her tutorial to see how she used a wood graining tool to create a realistic wood grain on her foam boards. For even more realism, she aged the boards with a crackle medium.

I'd never guess that this is made from Styrofoam and not real wood! Stephanie Lynn used a wood graining tool and crackle finish to create the faux effect. Brilliant! By Stephanie Lynn.

If you’re following the deer head trend, don’t miss this fun Pallet Art with a deer head silhouette from Kelli over at Lolly Jane. Can you imagine how challenging this would have been to create if you were using real wood? And how cute is that pompom garland?

I love this! It's made from Styrofoam sheets, so cutting out the deer head silhouette is pretty easy. Love the pompom garland, too. By Kelli at Lolly Jane.

I really admire these ladies and their amazing creativity and skill. Be sure you page through the first Pallet Art round up, too. I can’t wait to see what they dream up for this month!

(Full disclosure here – I help FloraCraft coordinate the Make It: Fun team, so I’m very involved behind the scenes with this project. It’s another one of the jobs I do around here. That said, the opinions I’ve expressed here are truly my own, and I really love these Pallet Art masterpieces.)

Happy crafting.
