Fall Front Porch with DIY Crates for Free

Fall Front Porch with DIY Crates for Free

It’s time for fall decorating. But before we do that, take a moment to enter the giveaway for my LyveHome Photo Organizing and Backup giveaway, valued at $300. It’s ending this week, and I can’t wait for one of my readers to win one of these little packages of photo management awesomeness.

Pumpkins and mums work for the next two major holidays, so it’s a decorating slam dunk. Me, I can’t stand to “waste” money on real pumpkins, so I’ve re-used these craft pumpkins for the past few years. To give them a bit more presence, I whipped up these DIY crates from leftover pallet wood from my pallet lemonade stand, so they didn’t cost a thing!

This is the kind of project that is easy to knock out if you have the right tools. My Ryobi miter saw, the saw stand that I love so much, and my cordless nail gun all were contributing players here. I’m not going to give you a full tutorial, since I honestly used scraps and didn’t even sketch out a design for this. But here’s the gist:

trim pallet wood scraps to size
Trim pallet wood scraps to size
check DIY Crate size with pumkins
check DIY Crate size with pumpkins
add sides to DIY crate
add sides to DIY crate
use nailer to add scrap slats to sides
use nailer to add scrap slats to sides
add slats to bottom of DIY crate
add slats to bottom of DIY crate

 

I made 2 of these from scraps, and used them to showcase some fall color.
