I'm making this tutorial because I almost didn't try this idea out! I found little to no support for the idea of reverse staining a design with fine details, but it worked out amazingly :) Try it out!
Decide how large you want your art to be and disassemble enough pallet wood for it. Cut your wood to the length you want. I cut everything to an equal length and staggered the boards.
I used Adobe illustrator to customize my pattern on the computer, but you can buy vinyl decals that might work just as well and make your life way easier! (Custom involved a LOT of cutting)
When it was all finished and dry I screwed two eyelets into sturdy areas of the boards on the back and twisted the picture wire. Now it's ready to hang!
I made this one as a birthday gift for a friend, and will definitely be making another! Hope you have fun making your own! Good luck :)
For the "Roots" piece, I saturated a small craft brush with the stain and intentionally let it bleed up the wood grain to get the grass-like line
