Merry Christmas Ombre Pallet

Disclosure: I receive payments for referrals to Social Spark. You can too! See below!
I figured I ought to have a Christmas Pallet like I had a Thanksgiving Pallet. Easy to make and looks lovely as decor. I just love this time of year!!

To make this I just chose some fun Christmassy colors and darkened them (or lightened them) to make the colors you see on the pallet. Then I used a stencil for some snowflakes. I free-handed the smaller ones. I used another stencil for the letters. Pretty simple!!




I hope you are all having a great December!!!!

I also wanted to tell you about the awesomest blog advertising company out there:

  12. Love this! I'm always looking for wood Christmas decorations since my husband is a carpenter and there is always PLENTY of scrap around! Just wondering how you changed the colour of your paint? Did you use latex or acrylic? Thanks!

    1. I'm glad you liked it. It was truly easy. I used acrylic and just happened to have a lot of selections of colors on hand. What I didn't have a mixed by hand. Either by adding white or a bit of black to darken. You're so lucky to have a carpenter husband!!!!! I hope you take good advantage of all that extra material for those of us who are totally jealous. ;-) Let me know if you have any other questions!!!
