Greet your Thanksgiving guests with this terrific display you make from recycled pallet wood!
Using wood from recycled shipping 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.
Our full-size pattern includes step-by-step instructions to make the layered Tom Turkey and the Pumpkin. Paint both with color washes that show off the unique texture of your recycled pallet boards or simply with solid colors--complete paint details are also included. (23" tall x 18" wide)
NOTE: Low-cost 5/8" thick rough textured fence boards or 3/4" thick pine boards can also be used to make this fun project in lieu of salvaged pallet boards.
One Standard Wood Pallet
One 5/8" x 5-1/2" x 24" piece of rough textured fence board (for base)
