Pallets are an integral part of shipping units. They are used to provide the foundation for shipping containers which makes handling easier. However, these pallets are usually sold off by shipping companies when they think these can no longer bear the load. If you have an artistic eye or are looking for a DIY art project, you can recycle these pallets to create stunning pieces of art for your home.
Recycled pallet vertical garden
Recycled pallets provide the perfect structural integrity to create a vertical garden. You would need to obtain a pallet board or just nail a few of them together to create a flat surface. Then you’d need to screw in a few hinges to hold the hoops for the planters or you can go the extra DIY mile and create your own mini planters using old PET bottles. This quaint pallet vertical garden can be leaned against a wall or mounted on a wall or even the fence to make the space look fancy.
Recycled pallet quotation board
The simplest way to create art out of recycled pallets is to simply clean them, finish them with a clear wood finish or stain and then stencil on your favorite quote to create a cool 3D poster. You can also leave the pallet bare to give it a beach-y and uber artistic look.

You can also leave the wood bare or stain it to create a cheap canvas for your nest homemade masterpiece.
