Mini 'Pallet' Valentines Display

I have been looking for something to do with my giant bag of popcicle sticks. Seriously..I have a million wooden sticks and have no idea what to do with them.
Then yesterday, I was walking home from the park with the family, and someone had a bunch of pallets in their yard. I decided to make a 'mini pallet' with the sticks and paint it for valentines!
Polka dot Valentines 'mini pallet'




You Will Need:
-Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
-Popcicle Sticks (about 13ish of'em)
-Paint (I used white and red acrylic)
-Paint Brush
-Nail File
- Gold Polka Dots (not pictured)



Line up two popcicle sticks, and start gluing the rest of the sticks across them like the picture.




When your done it should look like the picture above. (I trimmed off the little nubs on the bottom,but it's not a must)



next your going to paint your 'pallet' whatever color you want! I realllly love this antique white.


Ta Da! all painted and dried!



If you don't want a distressed look, skip this part. If you love the distressed look, then take a nail file, and file away until you get the look you're going for.


Paint a heart



 
I added some gold polka dots because who doesn't love gold polka dots?!

And last, I found a tutorial the other day for making an easel out of paper straws over at Wants and Wishes

Happy Crafting Lovlies!
