My mom’s birthday was recently, and we decided to make her a pallet Christmas tree.
We have tons of pallets on our farm, so we just went back to the barn, chose a pallet, and set to work. We used another straight beam to trace a triangle shape onto the pallet, and then the boys used a Sawzall to cut along the lines. Some of the boards on the pallet were loose, so we tried to nail them in better. The nails kept bending, unfortunately, so we decided to use screws instead.
Finally, we painted it! My brother attached the lights today. I really like how it turned out.
It was actually pretty easy to do. The hardest part was sawing the pallet. If we do it again, we’d probably use a Skil Saw instead.
have you ever made anything out of a pallet?
Guinea pigs are nice.
