Turn a wood pallet into a family photo display with just a few supplies! Do you have a love for wood pallets like I do? I have been collecting them in all sizes and shapes for years. I have a whole bunch of ideas saved on Pinterest of how to use them in unique ways.
I was in Target the other day and spotted this wood pallet in the dollar section (I love the dollar section) and thought that it would be the perfect size to turn into a photo frame. The whole idea behind this photo frame was to make something that can be easily changed out for seasons or holidays.
I started by gathering a few supplies – my pallet board, bull dog clips, tape measure, hot glue gun and glue sticks, a few small photos and bits and pieces from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection. Next, heat up your glue gun and lay out the clips in the arrangement that works best for you. Six bull dog clips worked best for me with the ephemera tags and pieces from the collection.
Next, use a ruler to evenly space out your clips – I used a pencil to mark where I wanted each clip to go and then applied hot glue to each clip using my hot glue gun. Now it's time to decorate your piece! I started by picking out the larger pieces that I wanted to use first (like tags, chipboard frame, etc.), and then chose smaller pieces (chipboard, Thickers, ephemera, etc.). I added a my photos and a few pieces of lace and tulle to my board.
I love how simple this whole project was, and I look forward to changing out the pieces for different occasions.
