Are you looking for a creative Mother’s Day gift? This is Tonya here… and I’m excited to share my tutorial for a DIY Pallet Picture Frame that will make mom’s day extra special. Thank you to Testors.com for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
What you need:
- Pallet frame
- Testors Craft 3oz Aerosol Paint – White Wedding Gloss, Silver Metallic, and Smokey Beige (or the colors of your choice)
- Wood rectangles (or squares), along with small wood blocks
- Wood letters that spell out MOM
- Decoupage glue
- Glue such as hot glue, wood glue, or E6000 (which is what I used)
- Wood frame is 14″x14″
- Letters are 5.5″ tall
- The wood that the photos are on measure 3.5″ x 4.5″
How To Make A DIY Pallet Picture Frame
Step 1: Paint your pallet frame with the White Wedding Gloss Testors Craft 3oz Aerosol Paint.
Step 3: Using the decoupage glue attach the paper to the frame, and then once dry apply another coat over the top. I like to use a rubber tool to smooth out any wrinkles as it’s drying too.
Step 4: Paint your wood rectangles using the Smokey Beige Testors Craft 3oz Aerosol Paint.
Step 5: Paint your wood MOM letters using the Silver Metallic Testors Craft 3oz Aerosol Paint. Tip: If you are having trouble deciding what color to paint your wood letters, paint the backs first, lay them onto the scrapbook paper and see which color you like best.
Step 6: Adhere the wood blocks to your wood rectangles using a strong glue, and then glue them to the pallet frame.
Step 7: Attach the painted MOM letters on top of the scrapbook paper using glue.
Step 8: Attach wood pegs to the wood rectangles. Tip: If you purchased unpainted pegs, feel free to paint those as well.
Step 9: Print out your favorite photos and clip them onto the wood rectangles using the pegs.
I hope you love this DIY pallet picture frame as much as I do. And, I hope all of the mom’s out there have a very happy Mother’s Day.
