How to Make Cactus Art
Remove the rope hanger from the pallet and set aside.
Paint the pallet with watered down brown paint. Let dry.
Draw cactus shape
On the cardstock, draw a cactus shape, marking the lines where each color will go. Use the photo as a guide. Cut it out to use as your template.
Trace & cut template
Place the template on the back of each of the vinly sheets, trace it, marking the cut lines for each color. Cut them out.
Turn the pallet so the slats run horizontally. Make sure the pallet is completely dry.
Add vinyl shapes
Position the vinyl shapes onto the pallet. Peel backing from the shapes and press into place. Use a heat gun over the shapes and press them down firmly. (The texture of the wood will show through the vinyl shapes)
Hot glue rope
Hot glue the rope ends onto the back top portion of the pallet.
