Scrap wood painted Halloween cats.We had a lot of scrap wood pieces left from many projects. I was really careful after cutting to pick up the scraps and save them. With these and things you mostly have on hand you can create some fun Halloween decorative pieces.


Total Time: 3 hours

Yield: 3 sets



  1. Collect wood pieces, use a thicker piece of wood for the base of your project when you are making stand up characters.
  2. The wood was already cut in different heights because of previous projects.
  3. Scrap Wood Halloween Decorations - scrap wood lengths
  4. For the cat display we simply just cut a v shape at the top. Nail to the base. Add a smaller sturdy piece of wood to the back of your stand up against both pieces, making a brace.
  5. Scrap Wood Halloween Decorations - marking for V cut for ears

Those are as cute as can be, and what a great way to use something that otherwise would be thrown away.
Plus, how fun making those too, one can really put their


imagination to work. I love this idea.
Thank you.
