Weathered Pallet Snowman



My mother saw a similar item in a store and asked if I could make something similar but bigger to sit on the lawn. I used Pallet wood to make the Snowman and his nose, using my ryobi circular saw, nailer, and job plus. Once painted, weathering the paint took a bit of a challenge but with some research I found I could use rubbing alcohol and my sanding attachment to weather the paint nicely. I also built a stand on the back to keep the Snowman upright and be staked into the ground. Overall it turned out great and my mother loved it!
