So I recently threw a bridal shower for my lovely sister,
in which a large number of fun and easy do-it-yourself projects took place.
Today I'd like to share the Pallet Boxes I made to display flowers at the shower.
-Anyway, some basic directions-
1. Find a free pallet. Ours had been sitting outside our house for months,
so I decided to finally put it to good use! It was perfectly weathered!
2. Cut the base and long side pieces at the same length.
Then cut the end pieces, matching in length.
3. Nail the long sides to the bottom (I used my pneumatic nail gun - favorite tool ever!)
4. Slap on the color of paint of your choice and Voila! Rustic Pallet Boxes.
I did sand the boxes to "blend" the paint a little,
and then added felt on the bottom for protection.
The beautiful bride! :-)
Me and my sis...being a photographer, she set up a photo booth. Fun! :-)
This is my favorite picture with Great Grandma Opal in the background.
On the longer box, I made it a little bit more sentimental in a way. I used old wood from the pallet, new chicken wire spray painted black, borrowed mason jars from our mom, and blue paint as a base coat under the white. They turned out better than I thought they would, and I'm glad she liked them SO much that she's using them at the reception! Love you sister!!! :-)
How would you use these in your home or event? What colors would you try?
