Create a perfectly rustic piece of functional decor with this easy project! I turned a Walnut Hollow tray into wall art that also serves as a key holder. I used the Texas flag for my project, but you could adapt it for other flags and designs, too.
- Walnut Hollow Rustic Pallet Tray
- Milk paint: black, red, white, blue
- Fabric Stiffener
- Metal hooks
Step five: Paint a 6 inch square of burlap with white paint AND Stiffy Fabric Stiffener. Let the burlap dry completely, flipping it over halfway so the backside can dry.
Step six: Print a 4-5 inch star on a piece of paper. Trace the star on the stiffened burlap and cut it out.
Step seven: Fold the burlap star in half. Repeat this with each point of the star. Once all the points have been creased, push two folded points of the stars together. Repeat with each of the five points. I have a short video HERE with more detailed instructions if you need help.
Step nine: Flip the tray over and measure to determine where to place the hooks. Screw the hooks into place. Nail saw tooth hangers onto the back of the tray so you can hang it up!
