Place the candle in the empty hurricane, then begin pouring the beans in very slowly around the candle to the desired level. Repeat layers with different beans.
The color combination possibilities are endless with so many rich fall colors to choose from! Specialty grocery stores have self-serve bins of dried lentils that you can choose from, as well. A white candle would be a beautiful contrast! The beans/corn are pretty enough to stand alone without the candle, like this “candy corn” display from last year at Halloween…
The first step is to prep the milk crate or the soon-to-be base of the ottoman. The age and patina of the crate will determine the amount of elbow grease needed. Remove any unwanted paint or rust with a sanding block. Once the surface is smooth, add a pop of color with spray paint.
Nothing says cozy like a plush ottoman. Coffee tables are great and all, but an ottoman can be a footrest, a chair and, with the addition of a tray, it does all the work of a coffee table. But before draining your savings on one, consider making your own for under $100.
(4) wooden candlesticks
drill + 1/4″ bit
(4) 1/4″ lag bolts
Attach some legs
To begin, flip the pallet over. Ensure the pallet you are using is marked “HT” for “heat-treated.” This verifies it is safe for indoor use. Drill a 1/4-inch hole in each of the four corners, equidistant from the edges. Run small lag bolts through the holes, and secure the candlestick legs after drilling corresponding holes in them.
Secure the Foam
Once the legs have been tightly fastened, flip the frame upright and place a piece of foam cut to the size of the pallet on top. Coat the surface of the foam and pallet with spray adhesive and set the foam piece on the pallet.
Fasten Batting and Fabric
Once the adhesive has dried, cover the foam with a large piece of batting and flip the ottoman back over. Fold the batting around, and staple it to the bottom of the pallet no more than two inches apart. Repeat this step with the fabric, making sure to fold the corners neatly and tightly while stapling to ensure a beautiful final product.https://www.hgtv.com/design/make-and-celebrate/handmade/diy-pallet-ottoman
