Here's what you'll need to gather:
- Wood Pallet
- Decorative Vinyl Sticker or Stencil
- Paint Brushes (bristle brush)
- Burnishing tool or credit card
These vinyl stickers come with directions on the inside of the label. It is very simple. Rub over the entire image (face up) with an application tool or a credit card, peel off the back, place the vinyl on the pallet and rub over the entire image again, then carefully peel off the top protective sheet.
Firmly rub over the entire image, especially the edges. Paint could bleed under any parts of the vinyl that are not fully adhered.
Use a "dry brush" technique to get a more vintage/rustic look. In the photo you can see that there is hardly any paint on the tip of my bristle brush. You simply do back and forth brushing motions, with very little paint on your brush, leaving some of the wood showing.
Carefully peel off the vinyl, peeling 'with' any intricate designs instead of against. It is also helpful to use a pointed object (carefully!) to start peeling the vinyl up, e.g. exacto knife, if it is too hard to get started with your nail.
