DIY Wood Crate
I had some leftover wood after making the pallet headboard. There were just enough boards to make this crate. So, I literally slapped this one together and the long and narrow design works great for my fall tablescape. In hindsight, I wish I would have used a table saw to have nice squared corners, but the jigsaw was quick and did the job.
Pallet boards usually have a rough side, so I placed the roughness inside the box. I also did a little sanding to reduce the chance of me getting slivers while I assembled the box. Once the wood crate was assembled, I knew the possibilities were endless. This crate will first be used for my fall centerpiece and then maybe Thanksgiving and Christmas too. It’s just the right size and it’s a great width to hold these mini pumpkins.

I love how the lighter natural wood looks in contrast to my black table and the bright pumpkins. The crate is simple and a unique way to hold pumpkins, apples, pine cones, anything you can think of. I added some faux leaves to fill large holes around the pumpkins, and then a few handmade pom poms to add texture and whimsy. And now my pallet is completely repurposed and recycled!
