How to Make a Pallet Snowman - Home for Christmas

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.

Isn't he cute??

  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.
