This project definitely lives up to it’s name!! I was able to get my supplies for this project for practically nothing- gotta love when that happens. Pallets have been the trend for a few years now- from vertical garden beds to actual bed frames or coffee tables- people have managed to pull them apart and build some pretty extraordinary crafts. With that we all love mini things right? I mean ping pong is mini tennis, we have dwarf plants, playhouses, even the nickname of “mini me.” SO why not take that a step further and build a mini pallet- you feeling me? I knew just the person I wanted to make this craft for! My brother’s girlfriend, Tiffany (who happens to have a blog too- shout out here!) just recently built a pallet bed frame so I thought a little mini pallet decor for the room would be befitting. Ready to zest?
17 Paint sticks (they are free at most department stores)
Hot Glue & Gun
Air plants (optional)
Start by laying three sticks out horizontally stacked and equally spaced (like the pic below) Next Glue two sticks together back to back…
This will serve as our “strongest” support piece for the pallet….
Next glue this piece so it is standing up vertically but connects all three flat horizontal sticks….
Make another back to back pair and glue in the center of all three sticks vertically….
And one more time at the base of all three sticks.
Next add some glue to the vertical sticks and lay the single stick face down on the glue like so….
All done and so easy!!
I decided to add some extra zest and flare to mine with these fun cork letters I scored at Michaels Craft Store
Simply snuggle your air plant in and it’s ready to zest up your wall!
