I know…I’m so neat and tidy. Ha ha.
Then I just painted the chevron design over the whole thing with craft paint. I did have to be careful not to get the foam core too wet because it made the outer layer of paper start to bubble a little. Since I was going for a rustic look, it wasn’t a problem for me. I just smoothed it out and glued a few edges back down after the paint was dry.
Anyway, there you have it…the cheater’s way to make “pallet” art!
