Make Your Own Thanksgiving “Be Grateful” Pallet Art

Back in February I made a super inexpensive and large piece of pallet art for Valentine’s Day.  Since the colors were in the scheme of my current living room pallet I have left it up all year round.  I decided to tackle the project again and give it a little Thanksgiving spin with the words “Be Grateful.” {I know I skipped right over Halloween and onto Thanksgiving.  HA!}  I never want to be limited by the holiday decor so I made it without any leaves or autumn colors. This project is really easy and cost less than $10!

How to Build an Upcycled Planter Box

I am so absolutely thrilled with how this DIY planter box turned out.  I finally used all the fence posts that I scavenged from my neighbors trash a couple of year’s ago….sniff.  I love the mix of old weathered wood with fresh rich stained tones.  This planter is huge coming in at 7 1/2 feet long.  It makes a huge impact as you walk up to my door and I love seeing some color on my porch area.

I decided to create a large DIY “LOVE” art for Valentine’s day.  However, I used untraditional Valentine’s day colors so I can display it year round.  It looks like a mini pallet.
