Every year these handmade pallet Christmas trees get to come out and say hello!
I had a pretty unrealistic dream one year that I wanted to fill my garden with lots of them and make some sort of magical wonderland! Storage was a little bit of an issue! So I stopped at three.
These are super simple to make, probably one of the easiest pallet upcycling projects out there.
You’ll need an old pallet which you can get anywhere FOR FREE. Never pay for a pallet! All my pallet projects have been upcycled for free, either by searching on gumtree/facebook marketplace or seeing them at the side of building sites.
Once you have your pallet check which side is the most attractive, then also decide which way up it’s going to be – again choosing the most attractive bit to keep as the base!
Then draw a triangle on your pallet, making sure the bar that holds each of the planks of wood, is going vertically through the middle.
Then saw either by hand or with a jigsaw all the down the lines, and that’s pretty much it! Say hello to your new pallet Christmas trees!
We dressed ours with solar powered fairy lights so they twinkle in our porch in the evening.
Wanting a little inspiration for some baby shower decoration ideas? Or wondering what to do to bring a little fun to an upcoming baby themed party?
We had the pleasure of providing decor for a yummy mummy’s baby shower. We created a few handmade, decorative bits and bobs full of colour. Including a nappy wreath, lace bunting, pink tissue blossom tree and nail varnish favours.
It was a beautiful afternoon full of laughter, cake and baby clothes galore! If you have an upcoming party you’d like some creative decor ideas for we’d love to hear from you! Get in touch here.
Need some help thinking of baby shower decoration ideas, we love helping people get creative with their events. We’ve got a baby themed board on pinterest for other ideas too. Get in touch or check out our catalogue of decor available to hire for your next event.
If you love travelling this one’s for you – a crafty way to capture all the holidays you’ve treated yourself to in a glance!
I bought a cheapy canvas and covered it in a shabby wallpaper to give it the effect of a wooden fence post.
I then sourced a cork map of the world, (all purchases via eBay!) it comes with one side covered in adhesive so I literally just stuck it onto the wallpaper. I thought the red and white parcel string would work well for this project and tied a tight knot around each aeroplane pin then pinned them into all the destinations we’d been to.
Next print out your fav picture from each holiday, something that represents all the shenanigans you got up to! Then use my trusty lil friend (who never ceases to amaze me – super glue) and stick everything in place (string and photos).
I’ve been wanting to make this project for a while now, and I’m very proud it’s finally complete and hanging in our lounge (husband probably not so much!)
This idea could be used though for other projects, there could be a country you just keep going back for more to, or a road trip around America. You needn’t buy the whole world map just the country/continent that you prefer 🙂
I’m not sure how I inherited such a ghastly and boring piece of furniture but I know a lil’ bitta’ love and care usually leads to miracles 🙂 So I researched around on google for the type of shabby look I wanted and then it happened… I turned my garden into a painters nightmare… Paint pots, lids, brushes, and sandpaper scattered about with paint footprints following me everywhere where I went?!
To start I sanded down the areas I wanted to cover and painted my lil’ hearty out. Rather impatiently I applied two more coats and left to dry 🙂
I then saw on eBay 6 beauties! Cute little drawer knobs all waiting to come tumbling through my letterbox one by one 🙂
