Remember this Husker mini pallet from a couple weeks ago? Well I flipped the pallet over and decided to do a Halloween theme on the other side. That's the nice thing about these pallets is that you can get two designs onto one. Maybe I'll do a Thanksgiving/Christmas pallet next.
For instructions on how to build the pallet, click here.
Once the pallet is built, paint it the color of your choice. I used a white Rust-Oleum spray paint. Then get online and search for a black cat, pumpkin, crow, or whatever it is that you want to paint on the pallet.
Since the pallet is about 20"x24", I needed to print my "stencil" out on two 8.5"x14" sheet of paper and tape them together. Cut the shape out.

|I decided to put a saying on the bottom since it looked plain. The font is Harrington.|
|There are probably much better ways of doing this, but I had cardstock and this blade on hand.|
|Arrange the saying where you want it. Cover the places you don't want to get paint on.|
