Valentine Tags

Valentine's Day is approaching fast, and I wanted to make something new this year.  I had a wood pallet that I wanted to use, and I had a fun project in mind!





First, cut the boards from the wood pallet to the length you prefer.  


Next, my handy husband cut the pieces of pallet into tags.  The large tag is about 12 inches high, the medium is about 10 inches high and the small tag is about 8 inches high.  They are all 6 inches wide.



Then, I painted the tags.



Next, I sanded them a bit to rough them up.



Then, I used my cricut to cut the patterns, but a cricut is not required, any stencil will work for this.


Next, stick the stencils to the boards and paint.


Then, when it is dry peal of the stencil.  I added a clear faux glaze to my boards - it has been raining here lately, so I didn't want to take them outside to spray them.


Lastly, thread the rope thru and tie it.









Thanks so much for stopping by!
