23 Ways to Repurpose Pallets Into Rustic Home Decor

I have to admit that my love of DIY Home Decor projects all started when I came across my first wood pallet. Ever since that moment the rest was history. The best part is that they are so easy to acquire and don’t cost anything! I mean who doesn’t love free right? With a little inspiration and a little sweat, maybe some tears you can create just about anything you put your mind too. You can say I’ve done my fair share of pallet projects over the years and today I’m finally going to share with you ALL (okay most) of my pallet creations here in one post. So sit back and get inspired

Wood Signs

So I will start with the most obvious…wood signs. All you have to do is nail a couple pieces of pallet wood together and get creative with it! More recently I’ve invested in a vinyl cutting machine to create my own stencils and it makes the process so much easier. If you don’t have a cutting machine no worries. There are plenty of other easy methods for creating your own stencil. Check out my post below to learn a step by step tutorial on how to stencil your own wood sign without a cutting machine.

Accent Decor

I love adding rustic accent ideas around my kitchen. These pallet projects are not only super easy to make but they all serve an alternative purpose besides dressing up your decor.

Mail and Key Holder

Seriously though, how cute are these? I’ll admit I had the worst habit of coming home and throwing my mail and keys all over the counter. I could never find my keys and important mail was always disappearing. With the help of a couple tools these mail holders are pretty simple to make and must have for your entryway.


I absolutely LOVE making shelves. There are so many different combinations and styles on how you can build shelves out of pallet wood and they are great for adding small knick knacks. These are just a few of my pallet shelf ideas. Click the link if you want to learn how I made the pallet coat hanger shelf.
