DIY Pallet Ginger Bread Houses

Hey everyone! Hope you all are enjoying your December. I can't believe 2016 has flown by so fast. But I am so excited for everything 2017 will bring us!

Today I have a tutorial for building DIY Ginger Bread Houses with Pallets. Becuase, you all know how obsessed I am with pallet everything. Lol!

They are super easy to build. All you need is a saw, a 2x4, some pallets, wood glue, paint and a drill & screws.

See how I painted them by pressing play.

Here's my cut list for the tall house: 
-Two 7 1/2 x 5 1/8 Boards (walls)-Two 10 1/8 x 5 1/8 - Cut the tops at 45° (front walls)
-One 5 1/4 x 4 (base)
-One 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 (one roof side)
-One 5 x 7 1/2 (second roof side)

So there you have it! See more of my Holiday Series Below:


  1. I love this idea! It's so cute and easy, too! I love this as an idea for gifts and to bring out every year to enjoy around the holidays. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love your pallet houses. Can you please tell me what you used to paint them? I assume a paint maker but which one? I'd love to recreate it. Thank you.
