Pallet Crates as Halloween Decor

Submitted by Lady Goats on Sat, 08/13/2011 - 20:54

I started to build these crates as storage for my oldest daughter's room, but I never got around to finishing a second. Halloween was coming on fast and I had about 8 pallets in my backyard. I debated tearing them apart and building another crate, or using them to create a graveyard.....

The graveyard won, and I ended up doing a picket fence, a casket and headstones with the pallet pieces. The crate fit right in to the decor, so it has now become a halloween decoration instead of a storage solution for my daughter's room. It even got a lid!

I also like the Ideas very much. These Halloween decorations ideas I find quite easy and less time consuming. He re I can add one more to use old colored bottles by putting some small lights in that. Even if you have time you can paint them with glass painting color. You can paint any scary picture on this. And for more Halloween decorations Jack O' Lantern is forever. It always works. You can carve a bic pumpkin and can design a mickey on this. Which increase the enthusiasm in the kids. So Happy Halloween for this year also.

You have really done a great job with the crates. The decor looks amazing, keep giving such creative inputs on your blog. There are so many things that end up as junk, it would be great to reuse them in a different way.

Today starting from the left, there is the gated entrance to flats, a new building (shop, garage & mini cab office) the flat roof building is still there but remodelled (chemist & ladies garments) the other buildings have been demolished and replaced by flats. The houses on the far corner of North Street are still there, with Prince Regent pub next door behind what was the island urinal in the middle of the road and tree.

I just love this box, it looks so simple and beautiful. It's great for the occasion too. I am thinking about becoming more involved in optional décor projects, I know this would helped me get more experience and launch my own business.

I dont think Blue will be a good option as it will make the room look dull. You anyways have a brown toned sofa and a brown floor. So do not go for blue. I suggest if you want to add color to your room add a rug, change your sofa upholstery and that should work. You may not need to paint the wall. Infact add some posters and paintings. All this will add color to your room. carpet cleaning Downers Grove IL
