Rustic Pallet Sconces

I saw these rustic pallet sconces on Facebook and just knew I could make them from pallet wood. I found a pallet and gave this project a try! They only use a few boards from one pallet, and you could even use scraps from other projects!

Here’s how I made these Rustic Pallet Sconces

First, I cut the wood to size. I sanded all the pieces until they were fairly smooth and cleaned the surfaces of dust. Next, I stained the pieces a rich brown color, and after they were dry, I glued them together. I kept the pieces clamped tightly until they were dry. Finally, I sealed them with a polyurethane varnish in a satin finish and allowed them to dry.

Installing the hardware

First, I used wire around the necks of the jars to attach the chain. I painted the lids and secured them onto the jars. Next, I installed a large cup hook in each sconce board, and two small eye bolts into the tops of the boards. Finally, I attached a piece of chain between the small eye bolts to create a way to hang the pieces and hung the jars onto the larger cup hooks. The final touch was to add flickering tea lights to the jars. This was a very fun project and something that you could involve the kids in as well. You could customize these in so many ways, and these would make excellent holiday gifts too.

I’m very happy with how these Rustic Pallet Sconces came out – both with how they look, and how gentle they were to my wallet!
