Pallet Upcycling Crafts

Love upcycling? Me, too! Like the adorable wall art above; it’s fun and rewarding to take what could be a throwaway object and morph it into a new, beautiful work of art.

But old pallets and box crates can take on many lives…the things people make with them can be downright creative, functional and inspiring. You’d never suspect some of these gorgeous items used to hold huge bags of feed grain off of barn floors.
