Step four: Make a color wash to stain the boards with by diluting acrylic paint with water. I use 50% paint with 50% water. The more water you add, the lighter the paint color will appear. Brush the color wash over each board so that they will have slightly different shades of yellow.
Step five: Paint the jumbo clothes pins black. Also paint the edge of the pallet sign black, to “frame” it visually.
Step six: Use wood glue to attach the jumbo clothes pins to the pallet sign. Let it dry.
You can add photo hangers to the back of the pallet sign to hang it up. Now you have a great place to clip school work, schedules, reminders, and anything else you want to display! Have fun crafting and creating for back to school!
