DIY: Pallet Party Backdrop

This is the easiest DIY, ever!

The pallet was used for my daughter’s birthday Sweets Corner — just 10 DIY steps.

First, you need a pallet — of course!

Good if you can buy at bargain price.

Better if given to you free.

Best if someone sent you goodies — in a pallet crate!

Second, lean it on the wall — that easy!

Between 1st and 2nd, remove the parts you do not want — like boards and nails.

Use hammer please!

Third, add table and chairs.

Mine were vintage and junky!

Fourth, add on other props lying around the home.

A frame,  2-tier holder, and a vintage carousel horse are good for me.

Hammer not included! I used it for the nails where I hanged the frame.

Fifth, make pompoms and hang them.

You will love the pallet for making it so easy to tie the pompoms.

But you have to decide beforehand how many pompoms you need — because making them can be addicting!

Sixth, add flowers.

No need to buy vases when you have empty beverage bottles.

Notice the trimmings? Those are pompoms scraps.

No need to throw them yet. Just scatter them on the table — because you are the boss!

Seventh, add more flowers!

Horse charming got to offer some flowers to the Princess.

And look after her crown while still sleeping — shhh this is a surprise party that the Princess wanted us to prepare.

Eighth, don’t forget the sweets.

Because the pallet backdrop is for Sweets Corner!

Ninth, show off the pallet backdrop.

Be sure that it is in the back :)

Tenth, add the sweetest.

Count the fingers — except those that form the binocular to see you.

The sweetest Princess turned six!

Now back to the pallet. I do not see its life ending yet.

As is, I have some more things to hang and change them as frequent as I like without worrying on nail holes.

I could paint it. Distressed it. Remove the paint. Paint it again. Whatever.

How about you, what would you do with it? Aside from throw it :)

      Theresa the kiddos are more clever. They still want to keep the set up but I think they’re more interested on refilling the sweets on the jar! Lol :)

    That is an amazing DIY project! Your daughter must have enjoyed it lots :)

    Pallets can be used as something to stand on for showers outdoors, something my church used this past Labor Day Weekend camping. Keeps the feet clean!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      I surrender Josh – that’s the easiest DIY ever! I’m happy to know one of your good works, again – the camping, I mean :)

      Ha! My daughter totally loved it! Who won’t when she got more than she asked for! Well, she only asked us to surprise her :)
