I am sharing my newest pallet project with you guys today as part of the monthly Create & Share Challenge. Our April challenge was all about Vases which is the perfect DIY project for Spring. Jason is always up for helping me with projects made with pallet wood. Pallet wood is free and has so much character!!! We created a DIY Wood Pallet Shelf in less than an hour that I could add fresh flowers to throughout the year. It is my hope to move this to our front door in the future but for now it is hanging in our powder room. For even more fabulous DIY vase projects, be sure to stop by and see what my friends created at the bottom of this post!!! Thanks so much to my friends Cat from Pocketful of Posies and Danielle from Creatively Homespun for hosting this challenge.
DIY Wood Pallet Shelf for Flowers

Rather than dismantling a whole pallet like I would normally do for a pallet project, I only used a small section of the bottom of it. Because this pallet had a built in curve on the side it was the perfect to remake for a wood shelf.
Jason helped me saw apart the top 1/3 of the pallet using his saw-zaw.
Next he sawed the top portion in half again with his circular saw.
The portion of the pallet shelf that is left is now 21 inches wide, 13.5 inches tall and 4 3/4 inches deep. Which so happens to be the perfect size for a wall shelf!
Jason cut one of the top sides of the shelf with a jigsaw freehand to create a curve. Using the curved piece of wood as a template for the other side he curved the other top side so they both matched.
Jason next cut 2 pieces of pallet wood. One for the back of the shelf to give it a solid back and one for the bottom of the shelf so that the flowers wouldn’t fall out. He attached both boards with our pin nailer. Lastly, we sanded the wood shelf down as best as we could and drilled a hole along the center of the back to hang the shelf with.
The shelf depth is the perfect size for a jelly mason jar!
I added three pint jars to the inside of the wood pallet shelf so it could hold lots and LOTS of flowers :).
With Spring upon us here in PA, I was able to bring in some fresh lilac and dogwood blooms from our yard.
The flowers look absolutely stunning next to the distressed pallet wood on our powder room walls.
The lilac blooms smell amazing too!
