I absolutely love beach living! I used to live on an island, and I miss the feel of sand under my feet and the sounds of waves crashing in my ears. I’m land locked now, so I turn to crafting to bring the feel of the beach to my home. This colorful seahorse beach pallet art will be a fun addition to my summer patio decor.
Seahorse Beach Pallet Art Supplies:
- Darice DIY Wood Pallet Sign
- Darice Seahorse Wood Ornament
- Craft Paint – (Various shades of blue and blue-green.)
- Darice Mini Sea Life Laser Cut Wood Shapes
- Darice Wood Glue
- Plaid Coastal Texture Paint in Sea Salt and Ocean
Step 1. Paint the slats of the wood in various shades of blue and blue-green paint. (I used Caribbean, Aquamarine, and Grotto from Plaid Crafts.) I painted one color over the entire board, then added other shades while the base paint was still wet. This helped blend the colors together on the beach pallet. Let the paint dry.
Step 3. Use coastal themed stencils and paint to add details to the painted beach pallet board. Tape the stencil in place, then use a foam pouncer to dab paint over the stencil. Be sure to blot excess paint off the pouncer before painting over the stencil. I dabbed on Coastal Texture Paint in Ocean first, then dabbed over it with Aquamarine paint to highlight it. I wanted to create an “under the sea” look.
This piece would coordinate nicely with the DIY beach wall art pieces I made last summer. Have fun crafting and creating nautical decor for your home!
