Today I am going to show you how to make a rustic monogram sign using recycled pallets and burlap! This would be perfect on a front door, as mantel decor or wall art. Not only that, but it is an eco-friendly way to decorate your house on the cheap.
Shipping Pallet Pieces
Kreg jig and Kreg Screws
Chalky Finish Paint in Escape (Blue)
Cricut or other die cut machine, or monogram stencil
I showed you how to make a wood pallet sign using a Kreg Jig in this DIY Pallet Sign Tutorial. Kreg makes joining wood slats super easy. I LOVE IT.
Once your sign is created, stain it with your choice of color. My favorite way to stain these days is Minwax Wood Finishing Cloths. Stain and seal in one step with an easy swipe.
I used my cricut to make a stencil with a design I created in Photoshop. The software I use to connect my Cricut and my laptop is Sure Cuts Alot, but I am pretty sure that is no longer available. Cricut has software for this purpose, which I have not used.
I used sticky back paper for my stencil so it would stick to the Burlap. I prepared the burlap with Stiffy fabric stiffening spray so that it wouldn’t fray when I cut it.
Paint with blue Chalky Finish Paint by DecoArt. I am loving this line.
