Stenciled Pallet Clock

You never know what someone is going to think of to make from a pallet, these days.  At Flamingo Toes, Bev made a really neat looking wall clock from one.

There are several things I like about this project.  One is that Bev kept the pallet intact but cut it into the shape of a circle.  I’d never thought of doing that!  Another thing I like is that along with making the clock, Bev actually made her own stencil to decorate the face of this clock.  Her method is ingenious, and she offers a detailed tutorial on it.  The finished clock is beautiful, and I’m sure it will be a conversation piece.

Wood Pallet Sign

Jessica from A Smith of All Trades tells us, “We had 42 boxes of magazines delivered on a pallet at work and as soon as the delivery man left I made sure to call dibs on the pallet he left behind.”  At home, Jessica tore apart the wood and came up with a creative way to use it to decorate the bar area in her basement.

“I ended up making a sign to go behind our bar with ombre letters and a gray stain,” Jessica reveals.  “It fits perfectly behind our bar and was totally free to make!  I’m in love.”  I think it looks great, too!  The ombre shading of the letters is very cool, and the weathered look  makes it look like something Jessica could have found at an antique store.

Surfboard Pallet Art

Kim from Sand & Sisal was challenged along with some blog buddies to create something from barn or pallet wood, the color coral, stencils, fabric, and Mod Podge. Fortunately, she had a pallet she’d held onto, knowing it be perfect for pallet art or a wall sign.

Right she was! Kim totally rose to the challenge and turned the pallet into an awesome piece of surfboard wall décor for her boys’ bedroom. In case you are wondering how the fabric and Mod Podge figure in, there’s a surfing emblem from an old t-shirt Mod Podged to the surfboard skeg. Don’t worry… Kim didn’t cut any corners {wink}!

Pallet Word Art

Karah from The Space Between found an abandoned pallet at a nearby construction site and held onto it for awhile with intentions to turn it into a piece of art.


Karah reworked the wood from the pallet to create a sign and then stenciled on some inspirational tidbits. The whole project cost her only a whopping two dollars. Have you jumped on the pallet train yet? They are such a great way to score some free wood and can often be found on Craigslist or Freecycle.
