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


  • wood scraps
  • nail gun or hammer
  • paints
  • nails

  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.
