DIY Wood Pallet Signs are a very popular and trendy home decor addition for that farmhouse, shabby chic look – just check out this search on Pinterest! These wood pallet signs we created are sized just right to keep on a counter, desk, or even hang on a small area of the wall.

The wood paint sticks are large enough where this craft project can be inclusive for many ages and abilities.

Feather crafts are trending! We’ve shared 5 of our favorite craft activities: quill feathers, dreamcatchers, watercolor, ornaments, plus DIY designs for your journal or canvas.
