So, it’s that time of year, time to decorate for Christmas. And as you’ve done in past years, you’re looking to change up your decor a little. And what better way then to use wood pallets? Wood signs for home decor are all the rage right now, and for good reason. In fact, you can find whole aisles in home decor stores dedicated to wood signs for the home. But what fun is it to go and buy a sign when you could just make one yourself for the same price, if not less? Whether you want to “build a snowman”, make a wreath, or paint the lyrics to your favorite Christmas carol, it’s all possible on wood pallets. We’ve even found 17 pallet Christmas decor projects to give you some inspiration.
