Did you see our Christmas Pallet Nativity Sign on this year’s Christmas home tour? Well, today I am sharing how we created our newest pallet project to decorate our farmhouse for Christmas. We made it for FREE in less than 2 hours. Gotta love those pallet projects!

As I have been sharing in my recent Christmas posts, I am really trying to be more intentional with my Christmas decorating to remind our family of the miracle of Christmas. This pallet project does just that!
We created this Christmas Pallet Nativity entirely out of scrap pallet wood & a little white paint!
After taking our pallet apart, we lined up the boards vertically.
We nailed the boards in place with some scrap wood horizontally across the back of the pallet sign. To give it a more finished look, we framed the sign with some more pallet wood. Our Christmas pallet sign is roughly 20″ wide by 36″ high.
Jason zipped a pallet board down vertically with his table saw to create a simple creche that is 18″ high.
I drew a simple Joseph, Mary, Jesus & a star on construction paper & cut them out as a template. I traced my cutouts longways on an extra pallet board.
Jason cut them out using his jigsaw. We used our finish nailer to nail each character & creche on.
We sanded the whole pallet sign down with our orbital sander.
I wrote “O Come let us Adore Him, Christ the Lord” from the Christmas hymn “O Come All Yea Faithful” first with pencil & then with white acrylic paint.
I also added a little paint to the characters as well.
Lastly, we added twine to 2 picture hangers we hung on the back of our Christmas Pallet Nativity Sign.
I recently moved it it from our living room to our dining room because I really love how it stands put against our fireplace wall.
I hope this inspires you to create this Christmas Pallet project for your home! Thanks so much for stopping by & Merry Christmas!
