D.I.Y. Announcement Board

Sometimes we all need a little mind detox. Like most people in today's busy world, I forget about one of the most critical aspects of self care: taking a break.

While most of my breaks consist of taking a much needed nap or reading a book by the pool, occasionally I'll get a crafty bug. Since I was needing something special to share new blog announcement with you guys, I decided to use up some old craft supplies to whip up an announcement board. Since receiving several compliments on it via social media, I knew it was time to share it with you guys!


This is one of my original crafts (as in, it's one of the first things I haven't stolen and embellished from Pinterest), and I am so proud of how it turned out (considering it was made almost entirely out of scraps)! It's quite possibly the easiest craft you'll ever see on the blog, so if you're looking to make your own and you're not super crafty, don't fret! It's only three steps, and I have full faith in you.


What You Need

-- 10x12 Wooden Pallet 
-- & Decor Accessory
-- Wooden Clothespins (3)
-- Rhinestone Decal Packet
-- Teal Paint
-- Purple Paint
-- Large Paintbrush
-- Detail Paintbrush
-- Hot Glue Gun
-- Glue Gun Refills (you'll need a good amount of glue!) 
-- Newspaper / Plastic 





What You Do

Paint. 
Place the pieces on a layer of newspaper and/or plastic wrap. The wooden pallet receives teal (color #1). The accessories receives purple (color #2). 


Bedazzle. 
My favorite! I glued on a few rhinestones because nothing is complete without a little sparkle. 


Glue. 
To hold everything together. Easy enough, right?


That's it! 

Whether you're showcasing student profiles in a classroom, pinning a recipe up in the kitchen, or announcing something for your own personal blog, it won't disappoint. Enjoy!
