Waste to wonderCreative Corner

Seasonal events are the perfect time to get creative and there’s none better than Halloween for learning some new tricks! Here are a few ideas on how to turn your workshop waste into Halloween wonder. These decorations are easy to do, inexpensive and fun to do with your little monsters (monsters, zombies and children must always have adult supervision when operating tools and machinery).

Branch off into a new direction with our Pumpkin Discs… There’s two sides to our Pumpkin Blocks… It’s a monster mash with our Wood Block Ghouls... Build up your knowledge with our Stacking Pumpkins... Lift some spirits with our Ghost Figures
