How to Make a DIY Set of Pallet Angel Wings

Wooden angel wings can be pretty expensive to buy so I'm doing my own DIY from a found pallet... FREE!

First I drew the shape I wanted on a piece of computer paper. 

My wings are small... about 5" x10" each.

I traced my shape onto a piece of found pallet wood then cut out the wings with my scroll saw.

I used Pure White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® to paint the wings but you could paint yours with any paint you have at home. 

Then I distressed the edges heavily.

I attached both wings to a small block of wood on the back and attached a key knob as a hanger in the center.

The best part is that you can make these wings in any shape or size you want. 

Large wings can be made with 1" x 12" wood from Home Depot.
