    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Lightly sand any rough edges of the wooden pallet. Remove any dust with a damp paper towel.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Paint the front, back, and edges of the pallet with Pinecone Brown using a 2" chip brush. Work the paint into the surface by continuously brushing the paint into the surface until it is opaque.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Paint a rough, dry-brush coat of Sprout Green over the front and back of the pallet, purposefully letting the Pinecone Brown show through.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Position the wooden letters onto the pallet to determine the placement of the painted ornaments. Do not adhere down.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Trace circles in various spots on the pallet using a round plastic lid of choice. (Pay attention to where the letters will be placed and include partial circles at the edges as desired.)
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Paint the circles with two coats of Pinecone Brown, Geranium Red, Desert Turquoise, and Citrus Green using a 1" angle brush.
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Use painter's tape to mask a section of the Americana Jacobean Floral Stencil on top of one of the painted circles. Stencil the design onto the circle using Splendid Gold (Metallic) and a 1/2" stencil brush.
    14. Instruction #7
    15. Repeat the stenciling for each of the painted circles, including the partial ones. (Vary the placement of the stencil over each circle for visual interest.)

    20. Instruction #10
    21. Paint a rough, dry-brush coat of Pinecone Brown over the front and edges of each letter, purposefully letting the Geranium Red show through. Distress each letter further by lightly dry-brushing Pinecone Brown with the side of the brush along all of the edges.
    22. Instruction #11
    23. Position the letters and attach each one to the pallet using E6000 Glue.
