Pallets for Pets

We are a nation of pet-lovers, from the furry to the feathery! They shower us with so much affection and bring so much joy to our lives, they surely deserve to benefit from our pallet crafting skills too.


So here are some of our favourite ideas for pet pallet projects. Remember to buy pallets for your pet projects; don’t risk using a discarded pallet you’ve found along the way, as you don’t know its history – it could be dangerous for the animals.


Dog Beds

We’re starting with a classic. You can craft something really individual for your dog, something to suit their own personality. Just look at these happy pups in their pallet beds:

Chicken Coops

More and more people are getting chickens, as part of their journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle. You can save yourself money by building your own DIY chicken coop along the way, giving your chickens a safe, cozy place to live:
