If you are thinking about how to decorate the house for Christmas, you already have seen that there are endless possibilities and decorative objects made of pallets as centerpieces, Christmas trees, nativity scenes… where you will find instructions on these links. However, today I want to show you a new very artistic pallet furniture project made from a pallet planks. This is a nice wooden mural where we have drawn the Christmas star. Its design is simple and easy to prepare, and we can also hang it on the wall as if it was a painting.
In our case we have hanged this mural over the nativity scene that we have in our little corner. Next we show you how to build it.
First the materials and tools that you are going to need are: a pallet, a template with a star shape, yellow and white paint, varnish of mahogany color, a brush, a saw, a hammer, a lever or a crowbar, nails and wood glue.
Then extract the pallet planks with the help of the hammer and the lever or crowbar. If the pallet aren’t very thick you can cut them with saw.
Next align all the planks on a flat surface, and sand them with the sandpaper or a sander, join them with the help of the wooden glue and two crossed planks at the back, as we show you in the pictures. This way we already have prepared our wooden canvas.
Then apply a few coats of a dark color or mahogany hue to the mural and wait for it to dry.
Now we can stamp the star-shaped design with the help of the template, the brush and the yellow and white paints. Remember you can design the template with shapes and colors that you like most. To make the template you just have to draw the silhouette of a star and cut it with the scissors.
Finished the Christmas wooden mural, you have to choose a wall in your house to hang it. This, can also be a good present to give for Christmas to your relatives and friends.
