A fun decorated pallet for Maya Road (a tutorial)


I have been having fun with these DIY wood pallets from Maya Road like this star one. :)

I started by painting it with my fave chalkboard paint. I usually resort to chalkboard paint when I'm lazy. It is essentially gesso coating and it looks good on porous surfaces such as wood. (If you are using regular acrylic paint, you should use a coat of gesso first to ensure the paint adheres to your surface.)

Once the paint was dry, I sanded it for a distressed look....especially the parts where the paint was applied unevenly...*winks*

Then I adhered the flat-back pearl trim to the edges. I've been using this on everything recently. *LOL*

I backed the mini embroidery hoop with a scrap piece of paper and added a sticker. Then I covered the whole thing with crackle accents. It usually takes a few days in my climate for it to cure fully and to see the crackles.

Once the top layer was dry, I added some glitter paint for a little sparkle.

Then it was time to embellish! I started with some white feathers for soft texture and interest.

Next I added my decorated embroidery hoop, a resin ribbon and a leather tassel.

Now I have a cute little wall hanging. :)
