Easter Pallet Art

Have you visited the Paint-It party happening right now?! Well I’m here to show you MY paint project for this week! Now that Valentine’s Day is over, I’m already moving into Easter and spring mode. It’s never too early to start, right? I’m secretly hoping that the more spring projects I do, the faster spring will come :)

I really liked how my Valentine’s Day Pallet Art turned out, so I thought I would make another version for Easter! So here is my Easter Pallet Art Using Wood Shims.

 This may shock some of you, but besides Christmas, I’m actually not a big holiday decorator. If I do anything at all, I like to keep it subtle and simple. So that’s where my little bunny silhouette comes in. This little piece just might be the inspiration I need to put together a spring/Easter vignette this year :)

Supplies Needed:

– Pack of Wood Shims

– Wood Glue

– Gray/blue paint (I used a can a paint I bought from the Lowes reject section, so I have NO idea what the color is)

– DecoArt Americana Light Buttermilk Acrylic Paint

– Paint Brush

– Bunny Silhouette ( I used my Silhouette to cut mine)

I used the same technique as my Valentine’s Day Art (pictured above). But this time I chose place the shims in the opposite direction for a little variation.

Next, after shims were dry, I gave it a coat of a light gray paint that has a hint of blue in it. I picked up a quart of it from the Lowes reject section for $2.75. I knew I would use it at some point! Then, I cut out a bunny silhouette using this graphic on my Silhouette and traced it onto my pallet.

To finish things off, I painted the bunny in a Light Buttermilk from DecoArt’s Americana line.

    I love this sweet project, and the soft subtle nod to spring and easter. I am with you in that I don’t really decorate tons for each holiday, but subtle touches are good! Thanks for the great tutorial.

    p.s. I just discovered that you live in the Northwest. I am across the water from Seattle!

    The colors on your bunny art are perfect, just the right contrast and so darned cute Taryn. Love, love it, have got to make it. I’ll have to hunt in Graphics Fairy to see what I can find, your image is so cute and perfect.
    I’m sure in mood for Spring projects so guess I’ll concentrate on Easter items I can give away for Easter gifts.
    Thought today was nicer but when I went out to do some painting the wind was quite nippy, doggone it,. I did get to hang out the top sheet and pillowcases of our flannel sheets today. The wind dried them really well. Had bottom sheet in dryer and top sheet dried much faster outside. I usually hang all my laundry when it’s nice enough. Happy Week

    OMG I need this! So cute! I actually have an indoor pet bunny who has his own room (long story), I think this would be so cute to put on the door of his room! Luckily I just got a Silhouette for vday so once I figure out how to use it, this will be my first project! Thanks for the inspiration!

    This is SO cute! Love it! I’d love for you to link up in my very first linky party {ya, ya…I’m a bit behind the times apparently} that started today.

    I am like you, in that I don’t decorate for every holiday. I try to change things up for the seasons. Your Bunny Pallet is so sweet. Love the duck egg blue color. Thanks for sharing.
    Have a Nice Day,

    So cute and I love how you made them with shims. What a great inexpensive idea. I made Christmas ornaments out of cut down wood shims this past year. I never thought of putting them together like pallet boards. Thanks so much for sharing. I found you at Someday Crafts. Please consider linking this up to my first ever link party at The Patriotic Pam.
    Hope to see you there,

    I loved your valentine one, but I think I love this one even more. I’ve been wanting a simple Easter decoration, and this is perfect. Thanks for the great tutorial! Have a wonderful weekend.

    Just wanted to say that I really like this craft and that we selected it as part of our Easter Round Up. What I especially love about it is that it’s not too over the top– it’s soft and subtle– just perfect for Spring. I hope to take this idea and maybe use it with other shapes/silhouettes. Thanks for the idea!
