12 DIY Wood Pallet Creations You Can Make At Home

Posted on Lifestyle 38

Wood is a durable, beautiful substance. As a child, I fed my inner carpenter by building stick figures from tree branches. Now, it’s quite safe to say that none of my creations made it to The Home Improvement Channel, but it was fun to create something on my own – with my own two hands.  When creating stick figures, I got a bit creative and added a dash of color from various markers and buttons for eyes.

It’s safe to say that I am well passed the days of wood stick figures. I have graduated to more alluring and sophisticated creations such as cabinets, backyard patios, and head boards, but the DIY premise remains the same. Below are a few intriguing wood pallet ideas. Try some out and share your experiences.
