Are you as ready for spring as I am? I always start getting that spring fever come the middle of February when we are teased with a few warmer days here in the South and long for when they are here to stay. Of course this year spring teased us a bit in February and now winter has come back with a vengeance in March. But spring is still coming!! So while we wait I thought I would share you how bringing in some spring colors and spring décor helps tide me over until spring is here for real.
I actually created this rustic pallet sign for the DecoArt blog right before we moved a year ago so if you read my blog. you’ll recognize this mantel and living room from our previous home. I loved this project so thought I would share it with you here too.
My supplies included: (Affiliate links included for your convenience)
- Americana Acrylic paint in Pansy Lavender, Foliage Green, Turquoise Blue, Poodleskirt Pink, Spa Blue, Hauser Light Green, Snow Titanium White
- Americana Décor Chalky Finish in Everlasting and Charcoal
- some chipboard pendant flags
- jute twine
And I also chose to hang my pendants on a pallet wood background – you could either display this banner across a window, across a wood background like this or just hang it from your mantel. The pallet slats were secured together in the back with 2 pallet slats screwed vertically across all the horizontal slats, painted with white chalky finish paint, and then lightly distressed.
I painted 6 of the pendant flags with the various spring colors of Americana acrylic paint. I hand painted the letters “Spring” on the pendants – you could use a stencil if you wish. The good thing about this is can be completely reversible and interchangeable. The same number of letters are in “Easter” and “Summer” so you could paint the back of the pendants and make it reversible for different seasons/holidays.
I used the charcoal paint to hand letter “Welcome” on the top of the pallet wood background. I just love using jute twine for banners and it seems perfect for spring. String them together on some twine and secure to the background and you are done!
Easy and perfect for spring!
Now maybe it will encourage the temperatures outside to turn to spring.
Have you already decorated for spring? It’s on my list to do this week! 🙂
