How to Make a Pallet Snowman
Have you gotten on the wood pallet train yet? I haven't until now. I was telling my nephew, Michael, about the wood pallets and how you can make Christmas trees with them. I showed him a few pictures from the internet and how some people made pallet trees. Then he came up with a plan and off we went to get pallets. I went with a friend and loaded 3 nice pallets into my mini-van. Michael went to Home Depot and loaded up 5 or 6 pallets. We had all these wonderful wooden pallets to make things with. We did end up making pallet trees, but the snowman is the cutest!!
To make the pallet snowman:
Start by getting a wooden pallet.
Then you need 2 round shapes, one smaller than the other. We used a garbage can lid and the bottom of a wetvac.
Then we used a magic marker to mark around the circles.
This is the saw...
So now the pallet is clearly marked for a snowman....
Michael started cutting the snowman from the bottom.
Then he just cut around the snowman....
Then I spray painted the snowman and Mike added the lights, white lights with a white cord.
I hot glued buttons for eyes. I had a wooden hanger which I sprayed a coral color (I didn't have orange) and voila!! Pallet snowman.
Depending on where you place your snowman, you may need a stake to hold it in place.
