Sustainably Made

Why hello! Welcome to The Prop Factory, where we make props, signs and furniture from recycled materials. Specifically made for the best of events, our artisan props are cultivated here in the heart of Devon. All our products are created from scratch by our team of skilled makers or bought secondhand then restored to meet our very high standards. We mostly love to work with wood and textiles, though occasionally you will find the odd bit of something more – we just can’t resist if we find something interesting to use! What you will never find are nasty chemicals or heavy pollutants. Our props are assembled by hand and decorated using a mix of hand painting, sewing, surface design and print techniques.

Have a look at our weird and wonderful items that will decorate your event most brilliantly. We build both props to buy and props to hire.

We know our customers like their props to be a little bit unique, so we purposely build them with the idea that when they’re gone, they’re gone - we won’t be building them again. To keep our props original, we work on one-off or small production run items that are ready to ship right away. We love this kind of work as it means we can use all kinds of ‘found’ oddments and really go to town with our imagination. Expect to see all sorts of reclaimed furniture remade into completely random things. We’ve also gathered a collection of unique and useful things to sell specifically for events, parties and weddings. This collection is a real assortment of ‘je ne sais quoi’, to put it mildly.

This is our permanent range of exclusive props to buy. Mostly themed signs and flat pack event décor, these props still carry the quirky and original touches that we love. The artwork for these props and signs is a combination of hand painting with the modern marvels of printing. These props are made to order so please contact us for lead times.

Just to note, we don’t sell the props that we hire, so our hire inventory really is unique. We have a curated range of select items across a range of traditional themes. Our true love lies in the colours and styles of vintage fairground and circus so you will find plenty of these, together with a fair smattering of the great British summer fete, end-of-the-pier seaside fun, farm and festival on the side. As you might expect, there are one or two oddities that we can’t bear to part with – look out for Brum, our authentic little vintage car and a truly giant vintage-style compass. There are, of course, games galore – from the ever-so-traditional coconut shy to mini crazy golf – and our giant letters – illuminated or faux topiary - which never fail as a perfect photo opportunity.

Martine O'Donnell - BBC Children in Need

"We approached the guys at the Prop Factory quite last minute for a large scale BBC shoot. Not only did they turn around a range of elaborate, custom made props in a matter of days but they offered up suggestions and solutions. The team are a delight to work with, the shoot looked amazing and I will be recommending them to my colleagues across the BBC. Cannot recommend enough!"

Richard Spencer - Heart FM

"Just wanted to drop a line to say a huge THANK YOU from all of us for everything this weekend. The hall looked amazing and I’ve had hundreds of comments from people saying how beautiful and Christmassy it looked. That’s all down to you, Adam and everyone at Prop Factory! We couldn’t have done this event without you!"
