25 Fun and Festive Fall Pallet Projects

Posted by admin on

If you’ve been an Insteading reader for some time, you probably know that we love the idea of upcycling pallets! Not only does it utilize scrap wood that might otherwise end up in a landfill, it’s a resourceful way to craft decor, furniture, and even garden beds without having to spend a pretty penny for supplies.

Pallets are super versatile, and once you’ve gotten them pulled apart, the projects you can make out of them are virtually endless! Especially if you’re looking to get a little creative and make your own decor.

If you’re looking to decorate your home and yard for fall, all you’ll need are a couple of pallets, some art supplies, and your own artistic imagination. With that said, we’ve found some of the best fall pallet projects to try out now for a perfectly decorated home come September.
