Pallet Signs

It’s amazing how much pallet wood can mimic old barn wood. These pallet signs have been a huge hit at the summer shows. Each one is made out of reclaimed pallet planks, finished with antique knobs, stenciling, or wood/heavy plastic lettering (the kind you’d find at Michael’s or another craft store). They are lightweight and easy to hang on a wall. The boards are held together by a single piece of plank that runs perpendicular to the rest of the boards, screwed into the boards to secure them in place. A grooved hook completes the sign; all you need to do is hang it on your wall on an ook nail or something similar.  No two signs are alike.

Here is my pile of planks prior to arranging them in a pattern for each sign. (Being nail free, I like to call these the pallet innards since they are the pieces between the ends, but that doesn’t sound as sophisticated as calling them pallet planks):
