It’s backyard bliss! Cut, paint and stick PVC tubes together to make the target. Number as you wish. Give each player three balls, step back about 10 metres and take turns to see who can land the highest score. Game on!
Gather your supplied

You’ll also need
Hacksaw; mitre box or set square; pencil; medium- and fine-grit sanding blocks; mask; drop sheet; plastic primer; coloured spray paint; Selleys Liquid Nails Landscape
Note All PVC tubing lengths measured from flat base to highest point of angled cut.
Step 1 Using hacksaw and mitre box, cut the 1m length of PVC tubing in half at a 45° angle. Alternatively, use set square and a pencil to mark cutting line.
Step 2 Measure the 3m length of PVC tubing into the remaining 8 lengths: 1 x 200mm; 2 x 300mm; 3 x 400mm; 2 x 500mm. Measure carefully, as the 8 lengths fit exactly into the 3m length of pipe. Make the first cut at a 45° angle, the next straight across. Continue angle/straight/angle until you have all 8 lengths.
Tip Use a cut piece of tubing as a template for cutting the next.
Step 3 Use medium then fine sanding blocks to smooth cut edges and remove shine from outside of tubing.
Step 4 Lay drop sheet on work surface. Wearing mask, apply plastic primer to tubing. Allow to fully dry.
Step 5 Apply coloured spray paint to tubing, being careful not to get paint on inside of angled ends. Allow to fully dry.
Step 6 Assemble by running a bead of Selleys Landscape Liquid Nails down length of tubing to be joined.
Step 7 Apply adhesive numbers to insides of tubing directly under highest points.
