Hi Friends!

It’s always great to be here at The 36th Avenue!

I’m Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers and I’m here today to share an easy and inexpensive way

to add a little spring flare to your front door this year!

I’ve been on a little pallet kick lately.

More specifically, making mini pallets using wood shims.

I started with a Valentine’s Day Pallet, I just finished an Easter Pallet and now

I have for you a little Monogram Moss Pallet Sign for your front door (or anywhere!).

I tend to lean towards more non-traditional door decor.

While I love a good wreath, I also enjoy unconventional decor ( like my Christmas Twig Wreath).

And I think this definitely fits into a the more unconventional category.

But if this isn’t your type of door decor, try placing it on a mantel or in the kitchen!

Supplies Needed:

- Pack of Wood ShimsGorilla Wood GluePreserved Sheet Moss – Snow White Americana Acrylic Paint and Paint Brush – Monogram Stencil – Hot Glue Gun – 3″ Burlap Ribbon

Start by removing the shims from the packaging and laying two shims side by side.

Place a line of wood glue down the middle of each shim.

Carefully place the shims on top of the two base pieces.

Note* shims are not even, they have a slight angle to them, so be cautious of the difference in the thickness.

For my first pallet I rotated the sides to create more of a rugged look and with this projects

I kept the shims at the same angle to give it a cleaner look. Allow the glue to dry.

Give the pallet one coat of white acrylic paint. I love working with acrylics because they dry so fast!

Perfect for a nap time project :)

Next, I used my Silhouette to cut out my monogram and then traced it onto the pallet.

This was my first time working with sheet moss and it is really easy!

I used a pair of basic scissors to cut strips the same width as my monogram.

I had it pretty easy since a “W” has very straight lines, which made this project really easy to complete since

I didn’t have any corners to work around. The moss was very easy to cut and easy to shape.

I hot glued each strip in place until the entire “W” was filled.

And if there were any gaps, I just pulled off a tiny piece of the moss and glued it in place.

Moss is very forgiving and everything blends in the end. My kind of project. Monogram Moss Door Sign by Design, Dining + Diapers

 

To top things off, I took some 3″ burlap ribbon and stapled it onto the back of the pallet to create a hanger.

So what do you think? Does it scream spring?! I hope so because I’m really ready for it :)

I want to give a huge thank you to Desiree for having me over today!
