10-Minute DIY Pallet Frame

I have barely begun to decorate for fall.  I have a big bin in the garage that I need to go through to pull out my autumn items but I did start with a few small things to work my way into it.  I hung my fall flag with a scarecrow and pumpkins on it out front off the arbor, I put a wreath on the front door and I made a frame.  Made a frame, you may ask?  Yep!  I want to go with a rustic look for my decor this year and stick with the traditional gold and copper tones.  I made my frame and got my butt in gear as part of the Fall Home Decor Tour and you can check out all of the wonderful gals that I’m joining for this tour below.

This frame took all of 10 minutes to make from start to finish.  

Supplies:

4 pieces of pallet wood ~ I used the wood from my “How to Take a Pallet Apart” Post and chose 4 pallet pieces ~ 2 shorter and 2 a bit longer but you could use 4 pieces all of a similar length

8 screws

Drill

Screwdriver 

Square or other device to mark where your pallets will be joined

I started with my 4 wood pieces and marked an even amount on the back side of my two shorter pieces and then drilled holes to go through the bottom piece but NOT all the way through the top piece (the piece that will be showing).

I added my screws and that was it.  I didn’t need to worry about everything being perfectly even because with the step of attaching the wood to the back and allowing a bit of an overlap I could hide any discrepancies easily.

Once my frame was all together I used it as a backdrop for a Gilded Ball Mason Jar Vase that I made a few months back.  I placed some autumn colored flowers into the vase and voila…the start of my autumn vignette.
