Dismantling the pallet

Using two hammers, I am dismantling the pallet. The goal is to reuse all the nails used in building this pallet to use them again in making my Jack O’Lanterns. You can check several methods to dismantle pallets in this article.

Sanding the pallet

Let start the project by sanding the pallet boards to give them a nice and smooth texture.

Cutting the pallets planks

Then using either a chop-saw or a hand-saw, cut all the pallet planks needed for this project. Of course, it depends on you how tall you want your Jack O’Lanterns to be, so I am not providing any measurements here.

Assembling the Lanterns

Once all the sides are ready, it’s time to join them all together. Using wood glue, join all the sides. My clamps are way too small, so I am using a paver to apply the pressure.

Painting

I applied orange color to the lantern’s body and black paint to the stems of the lantern. It’s up to you for the colors :)

Now, it’s time to paint the scary faces on the lanterns, use your imagination and make them as frightening as you can.
