In the world of crafting, the act of upcycling pallet wood is hugely trendy right now. Just about everywhere you look, in any area of the house, there’s some kind of DIY tutorial out there that will help you create a decor piece or piece of furniture using wood that was taken from old packing pallets. We’re actually huge fans of the look and of upcycling projects, but we don’t currently actually need anything inside our house… which is why we started looking outside of our house instead! That’s how we came across the idea of using pallet wood to make an interesting looking rustic fence. We’ve been keeping our eyes peeled ever since!
Just in case you love the idea of making an upcycled pallet wood fence of your very own just as much as we do, if no more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve bookmarked so far in our search for inspiration and guidance.
1. How to build a simple pallet fence for $0
Are you feeling intent on building your very own pallet fence from scratch but you’re working on a very tight budget and, if possible, you’d love to do so for as cheap as you can? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at the way Morning Chores actually outlined their own process of doing just that, taking pallets that no one wanted and affixing them all by themselves.
2. Pallet picket fence
Are you actually the kind of person who has always dreamed of growing up to have your own “white picket fence”, but you’ve also fallen in love with rustic chic aesthetics since? Then we have a feeling you’re going to get along very well indeed with the way Adventurous Andersons did in fact make themselves a picket fence, but in natural upcycled pallet wood rather than polished and painted white finishes!
3. Gated pallet fence with trellises
If you’re going to make yourself a pallet fence, do you think you’d rather go ahead and used the entire pallet as a whole for each one you have, rather than ripping the pallets apart to harvest the wood in pieces? Then we think perhaps you’ll get along a little better with something like this tutorial featured on Fairy Wings and Dinosaurs, which outlines the process of making a whole pallet fence with an opening gate and maybe even some trellises on the end if you feel like it!
4. Planter topped pallet fence
If you’re going to build yourself a thick pallet fence that uses the whole thing at once in combination with other pallets, you’ll find you have quite a wide top all along your fence. We couldn’t help but wonder, as we did out research, whether that space might be used for something! That’s why we were so pleased to come across this tutorial from Naturally Loriel that shows you how to turn the spaces in the top into planters!
