Today, I am so happy to be sharing with you all how to make a DIY Dollar Tree Pallet Hop sign. When I saw these cute Dollar Tree wood pallets, I knew they would be perfect to use for a DIY Easter sign. Using three of these small wood pallets, I created an adorable Easter “HOP” sign. As you know by now, I love using Dollar Tree supplies to craft with because they are so budget-friendly and cute! This beautiful Easter décor sign would be the perfect addition to your spring décor. I also think this Easter DIY “HOP” sign would make a cute Easter gift!
- 3 wood pallets from Dollar Tree
- stain – ( grab it here on my affiliate link HERE)
- old rag & gloves for staining
- 3 mini spools for base – found at hobby lobby
- Paint colors of your choice – I used teal, white & pink
- paint pouncer
- card board or wood egg cutout
- twine ( Grab it here on my affiliate link HERE)
- hot glue gun & glue sticks – (Grab my favorite cordless hot glue gun HERE on my affiliate link)
Step 1. Using an old cloth, stain all 3 of the Dollar Tree wood pallets entirely using Minwax stain in the color “dark walnut.” *Be sure to remove any stickers on the wood pallets prior to staining. Then, wipe the stain off and allow pallets to dry completely.
Step 2. Take the 3 wooden spools (I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby) and stain those as well using the same stain and method as in Step 1. Allow to dry completely.
Step 3. Using A Frayed Knot paint in the color “Tiffany,” dry brush the paint onto the wood pallets. **To dry brush, simply dip your paint brush in the paint and then offload a good bit of the paint onto a paper bag or piece of scrap cardboard, then brush the remaining paint onto the wood pallets. This dry brushing technique will create a more farmhouse/rustic look to your project. Allow wood pallets to dry completely.
Step 4. Using an “H” and a “P” wood letter cutout I found at Walmart, gently wipe on a little bit of the Minwax stain in the color “dark walnut” over the letters, then wipe the stain off and allow the letters to dry.
Step 5. Take a piece of carboard and cut out an egg/oval shape. I did this free hand, but you could try to find a pattern to trace if you feel more comfortable, just make sure the egg shape is relatively the same size as the “H” and “P” wood letter cutouts as it will serve as the letter “O” for our “HOP” sign.
Step 6. Using some light pink acrylic paint, paint the cardboard egg shape you just cutout. I used a cheap foam brush to paint this egg. Allow this to dry. Then, apply a second coat of paint to the egg. Allow to dry.
Step 7. Take some white acrylic paint and use a paint pouncer to randomly pounce some dots onto the pink egg. Allow to dry.
Step 8. Use a very small amount of antique wax and gently brush it over the egg to create a more rustic look. This step is optional. Allow to dry.
Step 9. Wrap some twine around the middle of the pink egg a few times and tie a small bow over the front of the egg. Use hot glue to secure the small twine bow into place. Allow to dry and trim away any excess twine.
Step 10. Put some hot glue on the back of the pink egg and then hot glue it down onto the center of one of the blue wood pallets. This egg wood pallet will go in between the “H” and the “P” to spell out the word “HOP.” Be sure to hold the egg and the letters into place for a few seconds after hot gluing onto the wood pallets just to better secure them. Then, hot glue the “H” onto the center of a blue wood pallet, and then hot glue the “P” onto the center of the 3rd blue wood pallet. Make sure your letters and egg are centered on the pallets before securing in place with hot glue. Allow to dry.
Step 11. Next, you are going to secure a wooden spool at the bottom center underneath each pallet using hot glue. Be sure each wooden spool is centered at the bottom underneath each pallet and then press the wood pallet down onto the spool and hold it into place until it dries. This will allow your “HOP” sign/wood pallets to stand up being supported by the wooden spools. Allow to dry and enjoy your new DIY Dollar Tree Pallet Hop Sign.
