DIY Sign Zephaniah 3:17

Materials:
    Pallet wood enough to measure 29+/-
     2-2x4's ripped down to 1" wide x 28inches long
     black flat spray paint
     wood glue
     1 1/4 inch trim nails
     white semi gloss paint

 First you will lay your cut down 2x4's horizontal each other.  Then you will put the pallet wood on top and nail them down.  Remember to put wood glue down before laying pallet strips.  I only put 1 nail per board and it seems very sturdy.
Ready to be painted!
Spray paint it black:
 I made a poster on my Print Artist program.  Then I cut the words out with an knife.  I am sure there is an easier way, but this works for me.  I am also able to use it again and again!  I laid the stencil pattern (printed onto cardstock paper on my pallets and started painting.

 The sign takes about an hour and a half to make.

I also made this purse out of a pair of 99 cent jean cut offs I found at the thrift store with some scrap material I had.  I am making a bigger one for a friend, so I will try to remember to post how to pictures when I make that one!

Blessings!!
