So Rob and I had been in South Texas for ages and AGES and we could never find any place to purchase pallets for my pallet wood craft projects. I had just gotten into this whole business when I was moving away from Oklahoma and I had a great source for pallet wood. They were cheap and in various states of wear that made finding the perfect wood for the project so easy.
We get here and I’m going around to hardware stores and every place I can think of to find them and no place, absolutely no place gives them away or sells them. But, I’ve gotten pretty dang good at faux distressing brand new wood, in this case cedar fence pickets, and winds up being almost as inexpensive as purchased pallet wood. Almost.
I made these guys here in South Texas but then took them to my parents’ house in Houston because my vision for these guys was tucked away under the trees for a very fun fall look. I mean, they look pretty awesome in my living room, sure, but these guys were built to decorate outside.
See? So fun!
So head on over to iLoveToCreate to see how to make these super easy hexagon pumpkins. It’s a great project if you’re just beginning with power tools. Because of the rustic nature of the design they don’t have to be absolutely perfect and a too short board works just as well. Seriously. It’s pretty dang fab. So grab your Aleene’s Wood Glue and let’s get after it over at iLoveToCreate!
