DIY Turkey Made From Pallet Wood

30 Days of DIY Projects 2 Make Us Thankful

Project 23

This is the twenty third post of our series of projects to make us thankful for DIY.  Be sure to check back everyday during the month of November for new simple and easy DIY projects.

It's our way of saying Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at
Simply Easy DIY!

Our neighbors really do a great job of decorating the exterior of their homes for both Halloween and Christmas. But, when it comes to Thanksgiving - it's the holiday that is sandwiched in between and gets skipped over, at least in our neighborhood.

To be fair, I've seen some folks attempt decorating with pumpkins, thanksgiving themed flags, and scarecrows.

Sadly, a pumpkin lasts several days here in Florida before it goes rotten. A carved pumpkin lasts maybe a day.

We need something more durable and lasting. Especially something that can take heat and moisture. If you've got pallets and a band saw, why not try your hand at one of these:
