Halloween Skull reclaimed pallet project

We made the Skull out of reclaimed pallet wood.

This project seemed like a perfect way to actually use the wood and get it out of our side yard.

The cost of this project was a few hours of work and no cost for materials.

Materials you may need:

– Salvaged Pallet wood

– Tools needed are a nail gun, sander, 4 inch grinder with wire wheel and jigsaw, skill saw and what ever else comes to mind. We also used some old vanity lights to make it glow.

STEP 1:

Sketch your Skull. I actually traced it onto poster paper first then we traced it onto the wood.

STEP 2:

Find some victims to do all the work….. The older victim is a pretty good worker but the younger one he has UNION written all over him…

Step 3:

Using your saw, follow the traced lines around your pieces of wood.

Step 5:

We sanded the mouth area out and cut slots in the wood

giving the allusion of teeth.

Step 6:

This was our final step. My husband took some old vanity lights apart that were removed during a remodel and we reclaimed the wiring to illuminate the skull.
