Foraged items to fill your hotel.
Your finished, made bug hotel will be approx (from the largest points) 57cm high + sign (13cm) x 10-11cm deep x 40cm wide - these measurements are approximate and will depend on the material and pallet boards available, please expect slight variations.
Our kits are sent through the post, and will include a step by step guide with images and text. We will also record a video tutorial for those of you that are more visual. This is the perfect way to create reclaimed accessories without the work of sourcing, dismantling, de-nailing and cutting your pallets.
We will be using recycled packaging and containers where possible in our kits, this will include recycled newspaper and recycled containers (e.g. jam jars), please continue by recycling after you’ve used.
