July 1st is an important day – In Canada it’s cause for celebration because it’s Canada Day!
What better way to celebrate your Canadian allegiance than a fun tutorial to make a Canadian Flag pallet. If you have a camp, a house on the lake or even space in your front garden this is a creative piece that withstands the elements and showcases your Canadian pride.
1 can white spray paint or small can white paint
1 can red spray paint or small can red paint – We chose a rustic red vs. fire engine for a more country feel. But any red will work.
*Spray paint it a lot easier with less cleanup*
Printed Maple Leaf
1. Wipe down your pallet – we used our kitchen broom for a quick sweep down.
2. In a well ventilated, outdoor area, spray paint your entire pallet red. Let it dry until it’s dry to the touch.
3. Free hand or print out a maple leaf we used this as our guide, maple leaf – you’ll need an 8×10 (or larger, your choice) maple leaf template.
4. Cut out your maple leaf and place it on the center of your pallet. Our pallet was 7 boards across, so we placed the leaf in the center of the 3 middle boards. Place tape on the back of your leaf and place it on the board.
5. Spray paint your middle three boards, over the leaf template white. Let air dry.
6. Once dry to the touch, peel up your leaf template.
You now have a pallet Canadian flag to enjoy!
