The Best Pallet Christmas Ideas This Festive Season

We don’t know what it is about this time of year, but it seems that while everyone’s starting to get into the festive spirit, everyone’s creative juices are starting to flow. Handmade gifts and decorations are all the rage at the moment, and through the use of the internet, you can figure out how to make anything out of… well, anything!

At Alexandra House, we’ve been busy decorating for the holiday season and preparing for all the Christmas visitors that are bound to come through our doors, so no one will judge you for looking up ‘pallet Christmas ideas” for your pallet Christmas projects. Believe us, we’ve been there. 

If you’ve been getting busy this year with your bulk buying and online ordering, you’ll know the struggles of having too many leftover wooden pallet boards and not a whole bunch of inspiration. 

We understand that getting over that first creative hurdle can be difficult. However, with the festive season rapidly approaching, there’s never been a better time to unleash your inner home decorator and brainstorm some pallet Christmas ideas just in time for the holidays to start. So, what are you waiting for? Here are some of the best pallet Christmas ideas to really get you in the festive spirit.  

3 Pallet Christmas Decoration Ideas to Transform Your Home This Year

1) Christmas Pallet Treat Box

Whether you want to create a Christmas pallet treat box for yourself this holiday season, or you’d like to make one as a present for a loved one, this is a brilliant way to recycle your old pallet wood this Christmas. This super cute pallet project is bound to win you a few brownie points over the holiday season and could be the perfect vessel for storing your other bits and pieces of holiday decor and potential extra pallet crafts. 

Make sure you keep your treat box stocked up all throughout the month of December, whether that’s with tasty homemade gingerbread men and tree-shaped sugar cookies, or your classic mix of nuts and dried fruits so that everyone can have a nibble whenever the mood takes them. This is a great way to bring your family and friends closer together and serve the ones you love some delicious snacks and gifts in a rustic, traditional, and DIY Christmas kind of way.

There’s a reason that pallet wood trees are so popular at Christmas! Not only is it an inexpensive way to recycle your pallets, but it’s also a great project to take on together as a family. Not to mention that they’re so easy to assemble and decorate, meaning that everyone can get involved. 

Whether you use this decoration as an advent tree/pallet advent calendar, a stocking hanger or the perfect place to put your Christmas cards, this project is full to the brim with options. You could even use your diy pallet tree as outdoor decor; we’re sure your front porch will look absolutely dazzling with one of these sitting up front and centre. 

You could go down a more traditional route like Pinterest user 1001 Pallets, who opted for painting a pallet tree the classic red and green colour scheme for their tree. However, if you’re wanting to try something different, you could follow in their footsteps once again by giving this 3D felt garland pallet Christmas tree a go! Don’t be afraid to get a little bit silly; that’s what Christmas is all about, after all.

Now, this is what we call “Making a Festive Statement”. Sure, you could just use your leftover pallets to create something small and subtle to decorate your house with. You could make a pallet Christmas tree or Christmas pallet treat box and celebrate with your family just like everybody else does come the holiday season… OR you could make a great dining table out of your pallets so that you and your family can enjoy the most creative and (of course) festive Christmas Dinner yet! 

We suggest getting really crafty with your table decorations too; try making your own table wreaths or candle centrepieces from scratch. The more homemade the better! Or, of course, if you’ve exhausted every ‘crafty’ bone in your body making your Christmas dinner pallet table, you can buy this beautiful table candle centrepiece from Not on the Highstreet!
