Winter Red Truck Acrylic Painting DIY

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 templates! This is the perfect project to add to your seasonal decor or even give as a gift to a friend!

Last season, 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.

Materials Mentioned

  • Wood Sign or Painting Surface
  • Acrylic Paintbrushes
  • Acrylic Craft Paint
  • Snow-Tex

You can use anything that speaks to you to paint on! I found a similar pallet wood sign that would work perfectly.

Then, of course, I promised I’d take you along on the ride of what I decided to create with them.

I showed you guys my finds in this Facebook Live!

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.
