Winter Red Truck

Today I want to share how I turned a Target Dollar Spot find into fun holiday home decor by adding an acrylic painted winter Red Truck made easy with our new templates! This is the perfect  project to add into your seasonal decor or even give as a gift to a friend!

A few weeks ago I found all kinds of cute stuff at the Target dollar finds section in the store! I knew I had to buy them even though I didn’t know what I was going to do with them yet. I found two great pieces! A plexiglass window and this faux wood pallet. Then of course I promised I’d take you along on the ride of what I decided to create with them.

The one I’m gonna show you today is the wood pallet. This one was so much fun. It’s a faux wood pallet board. It’s four slats and has a little hanger on the back of it. With the horizontal wood pieces across the front I know I needed to do something small in between that section. I decided to add my famous little red truck! This cute little truck can be added to so many things!
If you want to paint your own red truck you can grab the template here and be sure to watch my Facebook Live below where I show you exactly how to do it! The truck template is perfect for a 16 x 20 or you can shrink down the size for whatever you are working on.

Painting the truck is all about trusting the process! It’s going to start off looking very childlike but it’s all the finishing touches that make it complete. 

Something new I added to this one is a really fun product called Snow-Tex by DecoArt. It gives this really cool 3-D effect to your paintings. You can see the texture in my closeup pic. Adding a little bit of water to the Snow-Tex makes it easier to apply especially for finer details.

I used DecoArt Cherry Red and Holly Green in this painting as well. I love DecoArt paint because it’s a little thicker and covers better than most brands.
