NEW! Make this attractive Shamrock display entirely from boards salvaged from free shipping pallets!
Using wood from recycled pallets just makes sense...not only do you save money making this attractive display but you also help the environment by saving trees and keeping used pallets out of landfills.
Full-size patterns and complete instructions are included for the three different size shamrocks. Follow our painting details to apply a color wash that allows the unique texture of your recycled pallet boards to show through or simply paint solid colors. (32" wide)
