26 Shipping Pallet Projects

They’re everywhere… and they can be turned into just about anything… and they can be free, but make sure you ask! I’m talking about shipping pallets, y’all! And there are so many fun ways to use them, my friend, Karah actually just wrote an entire book about pallet projects called, DIY Wood Pallet Projects!  That’s right, I have a famous friend, y’all! In addition to her 35 genius ideas, here are 26 more wood pallet projects for your home!

Karah’s book (and blog) are awesome. She made a giant clock, a Christmas tree, picture frames, full length mirror, and even a hanging bed out of pallet wood! True!  And all of the detailed instructions for 35 pallet projects are inside of this one very special book! Need the book now? You can buy it here!

80 DIY Halloween costumes {+ a baby hamburger}

Me and 80+ blog buddies got together to bring you 80+ DIY Halloween costumes, including Maxwell’s cheeseburger costume and DIY game boy oneisie costume. How stinkin’ cute is this giant cheeseburger?

DIY Baby Hamburger costume

Along with my DIY cheeseburger costume, I’m sharing 88+ more really awesome handmade costume ideas from talented bloggers everywhere!


101+ Handmade Halloween costumes at Creating Really Awesome Free Things

All you need for the cheeseburger costume is:

  • Felt (4 pieces of tan, and 1 piece of the following beige, yellow, red, green
  • A sewing machine
  • Stuffing
  • Fabric scissors
  • Velcro
  • Brown onesie

First, cut out your cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce out of the felt… This is so not a precise process! Here are my pieces:

DIY Baby burger costume

I used yellow thread and sewed everything to the cheese. To make the top burger bun, I cut 2 round-ish circles out of the brown felt.  For the sesame seeds, I sewed on small beige ovals to one circle. I left a little hole to stuff and then sewed up the hole by machine.

Here’s what the cheeseburger topping look like from the top.

Then, just add Velcro to all of the pieces and stick the cute baby in his brown onesie. Velcro everything up and take a tasty little bite of that cheese burg! Maxwell likes the lettuce!


If you’ve got a crawler, put the top bun on his back! Either way is pretty dang adorable!
