Note: Follow manufacturer’s directions throughout. Step-out photos show a larger die-cut shape for detail; follow the same steps to create foiled letters.
Paint horizontal planks of pallet desired color; let dry. Apply second coat; let dry.
Plan wording at desired size. Die cut necessary letters from Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheets.
Using photo as guide, separate words into groups by desired color. For example, LOVE is Pink Melon, LIVE is Teal and remaining words are Gold. Be sure no letters are reversed.
Remove paper liner from front of first foam letter.
Place foam letters, sticky side down, onto dull back side of desired Deco Foil Transfer Sheet. Be sure letters do not touch as adhesive is very strong.
Turn foil sheet over and rub over all shapes with fingertips.
Carefully peel away foil sheet from letters.
Remove paper liner from back of each letter, one at a time, and press to pallet.
