Changing out the decorations in your house for each season and holiday can become expensive, overwhelming, and a ton of work if you let it be that way. I have found the perfect way to add a few simple touches no matter what the occasion with this decorative shelving made from a rustic pallet tray.
Your house doesn’t have to look like Santa Claus or the Easter bunny threw up in it. A few, simple touches usually turn out to be the best and most classic looking decorations. Get your home ready for the next big occasion with this simple project and tips.
Decorate Your Home for Every Occasion
Sometimes we are held back from turning out home into a gorgeous oasis for any party or holiday because we think it cost so much money and takes forever to do so. I am so ready for you to be able to change all of that today.
I found this rustic pallet tray from Walnut Hollow along with their woodburner for the perfect, simple touch. Pallet trays, pallet art, and just about anything pallet related is so popular right now.
To get started I used white chalky finish spray paint and sprayed the entire tray until it was coated completely. I used the woodburner with the flow point attached, which is basically just a rounded off circular top, to add simple touches of polka dots in each of the corners.
Turn the tray onto its side and voila, you have a shelf. A quite rustic shelf perfect for any room or décor.
I started adding small items that I already had around the house that paired together perfectly. The empty picture frame was just a wooden frame that I spray painted gold. I placed a small Bible in front of it along with a small gold, tea light candle holder.
On the other end of the shelf, I placed a vase that I made using milk bottles and acrylic paint. You can find that tutorial HERE. Inside the vase are a few clippings from a money tree that my grandparents had in their backyard. (And yes that’s a real thing.)
Beside the vase was a metal sign with my “F” monogram. To add a little more rustic touch, I found an empty wooden spool I had that came with twine on it before. Adding different items that are of different heights and sizes gives a perfect balance.
I could still keep some of the same items, add a few, take away a few, and I have the perfect way to style this shelf for every holiday. Just changing out the type of flowers I use is one simple change. When Fall gets here, all I have to do is add a few small pumpkins. Let Christmas come and have no fear. I just add a few tree trimmings and some ornamanets.
You can do this same thing with many different areas of your house. Try this pallet tray as exactly that…a tray on your coffee table. Change a few items each holiday and you are all set.
Be sure to get yourself a rustic pallet tray, and you are well on your way to having a home decorated no matter what the occasion may be without spending a fortune. Hang your shelf and get started now. You won’t regret it.
