Try these fall pallet creation DIY ideas.

Southwestern Michigan in Fall - what a blessing it is to live here. The warm weather is still lingering for the rest of this week - I am fine with that (I even took a September swim in Lake Michigan in South Haven - refreshing!). But the glorious days of crisp air and turning leaves is right around the corner.

We are not ready to announce the dates for PalletPalooza 2017, but they are coming very soon! You will want to keep up your pallet creating skills in the meantime, so we have put together a little round up of pallet projects for fall decorating. Enjoy!
