Pallet Display Boards

I made these cute pallet display boards for our MOPS raffle this week. This week's topic is "Be Significant" with a video message from http://lisajobaker.com/. (check out her blog if you are a momma up to your ears in kiddos) The C.S. Lewis quote, found here, succinctly sums up the message and pairs nicely with a picture of your kiddos, or, in my case, my son's hand print fish card (the inside reads: I'm hooked on you!). 


 This one is my favorite...so I'm keeping it. 
I love the color variations between the boards, the holes and knots. 


This one has a fun beveled edge on the middle plank.

LOVE this Tacky Spray! The can does not lie, it is Fast! I found it easier to work with than Mod Podge...mostly because I tend to wrinkle paper when I use MP. 
The Crystal Clear was used to "seal" the paper after the Tacky Spray dried. There was some curling of the paper's edges which had to be re-Tacky Sprayed and then covered with books while it dried...which probably wouldn't have happened with Mod Podge...but I'll take the extra time just to avoid wrinkles. 


Hopefully the door prize-winning-mommas like these. Who doesn't like to display pics of their kids, or hang up their latest masterpiece?
