Spooktacular Uses for Pallets this Halloween
Halloween is upon us and whether you dress up and go all out like our vice president, Amy Angellotti (pictured at right is her transformation from last year), or you prefer to stay home and hand out candy, you can make your ‘crypt’ more spooktacular with the help of discarded pallets.
It’s easier than you think to find suitable pallets for the project. Start with locally owned (or smaller) businesses and simply ask them if you can take their used or discarded pallets. Good candidates are garden and hardware stores, machine/equipment rental stores, furniture stores, pet shops, and specialty food/beverage stores. Wait for a slower period of business so the owners have time to talk (you don’t want to divert their attention away from paying customers). When you ask, be sure to explain why you are looking for their used or scrap pallets. When people are drawn in to your ghostly plans to spook your neighborhood ghouls and goblins, they are more likely to help.
So, whether you want to create a haunted hallway leading to your door, a harvest decoration, a creepy yard display, or even a menuboard for party treats, wooden pallets can be used in their entirety or as individual slats to create the desired look.
