DIY Lemonade Stand Made Out of Pallets

Hot summer days and bored kids leave you looking for things to do and ways to cool down. Ice cold lemonade from your very own lemonade stand can help you with both of these. Give the kids a little extra pocket money with a lesson in entrepreneurship.   This lemonade stand was pretty inexpensive to put together, and only took about half an hour to build once I had gathered all my supplies. We hope that you love our DIY Lemonade Stand Made Out of Pallets.

The counter can be covered in a pretty wrapping paper to give it some pizazz and then in contact paper to make an easy to wipe clean surface- you can just use a printed contact paper if you find one you like, I found a lot more options available for patterns in wrapping paper so I went that way. Leaving it simple means that it can be used for a lemonade stand but also as a dramatic play counter for; a bakery, candy shop, produce stand, grocery store, and more. You can pick up these exact crates at Walmart for $8.97/ea. or any hobby and craft store should carry some comparable as well. We got our pallets from a guy on Nextdoor. I've gotten them off of Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace and from driving by somebody getting rid of them.

DIY Lemonade Stand Made Out of PalletsDirections

  1. Use a router or hand sander to round the corners and edges of board for your wooden crate lemonade stand.
  2. Roll out wrapping paper on to flat surface, cut to twice as wide as the board plus 6” in width and 6” length, then spray generously with spray adhesive, immediately spray one side of board and place board in center of paper.
  3. Spray sides of board and the top that is now showing with adhesive again, fold paper over board, smoothing as you go, to finish the ends fold the corners inward and towards board-much like you would when wrapping a gift.
  4. Repeat the same process as the paper with clear contact paper.
  5. On a solid surface place each crate beneath either end of the board, right up to the edge
  6. Place a screw or nail in each of the 4 corners of each crate/board.
  7. Find the center on the side of your crate and place your square dowel rods at the desired height, fasten them on with nails or screws.
  8. Add a pretty wide burlap ribbon as pictured, or make a bunting from paper to decorate your stand.

We hope that this DIY Lemonade Stand Made Out of Pallets or wooden crate lemonade stand post inspires you. Happy building!
