DIY Pallet Sign

At my house, you’ll see a trend…we like to incorporate the word “hope” into our decor.


 DIY PALLET SIGN of Hope by Creatively Living

Like many projects, I started this project with no specific details in mind; except that I knew I wanted a pallet sign.

I had a pallet that I took apart and decided to just start and see what would happen…

I placed a few of the board together, grabbed a couple stakes to hold my boards together, and started screwing them in.

I wasn’t going for perfection (I’m so glad I like the “rustic” look), so I lined the pieces up the best I could and didn’t bother measuring or being too picky.

Here’s the front of the sign after screwing it together.

It was now ready for some handlettering.

I thought I should keep it simple, so I decided to go with my well-loved word “hope“.

I stenciled the word on and then used a Sharpie to actually draw it on the sign (sorry no pics of this).

After I was done drawing I allowed the ink to dry and brushed Varathane over the entire sign to preserve and brighten the sign.

I used an Oil Based Clear Gloss Varathane by Rust-Oleum, which added a pretty, warm golden glow.

This sign cost be absolutely nothing to make, all the materials were things I already had.

What can you make out of items you already have?

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
