With these two things–I feel like I could create anything! so many ideas! So instead of doing one…I thought I would show you 4 fun things you can make! 4 fun ideas of things to make with floracraft foam

 

Each thing is made the same basic way– The Floracraft® Styrocutter® Plus heats up and melts through the Make it: Fun® Foam Sheets like butter! So easy to use!

First up: Make a frame! how to a make a fun frame out of foam I use a sharpie to outline a design and then cut it out. draw with sharpie I used a Shaper to get grooves into the foam making a frame Then cover with smooth finish and let dry! floracraft smooth finish You can see the smooth finish seals the holes and make it paintable! smooth finish Make sure to sand to get it nice and smooth (I actually do two layers of smooth finish!)  sandpaper Then paint! You can make any fun shaped frame–or a custom size! funky frame diy

 

I, of course, chose to make a FRIENDS frame! It hangs on my garage door!  friends frame

I literally pull into my garage and sing, “I’ll be there for you…CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP”

Here’s me…watching friends…with my friends frames! janice from friends frame Next up: Arrow/ jewelry holder

Arrows are big on trend! Really fun to use in your decorations! I love them for gallery walls because they fill a small empty space–but I thought an arrow would be super cute in my daughters room as a necklace holder!

cut out…smooth finish..and sand (these would be perfect for scrap pieces!)

I painted a dowel and glued it into the holes I poked in! arrow on a dowel

Hung it on a few hooks hang an arrow

You could hang some S hooks off the dowel for the jewelry..but I just hung them up directly on it!.

Number 3 Fun decorations–like a Tee Pee! make a tee pee

 

Same basic way as above…I used the  Styrocutter® to melt circles and patterns–added smooth finish and painted! I had flaps that I glued on with Styroglue®.

 

styroglue I painted some skewers to stick in the top. paint skewers

And then I used a Fiskars punch to decorate it!  tribal teepee fiskars paper punch

I also made a Fiskar’s banner (using hot glue and baker’s twine!) chevron banner

fun teepee You can do all sorts of fun things…like a giant flamingo dresser-900x1381 And last but not least: Make some names or words–
make-it-fun-craft-foam-letters- I actually was going to do the words play…and ran out of smooth finish! But luckily I’ve done a words a few times! play letters

 

You can head HERE to see the how to–but you can easily wrap these in fun fabric…or paint! fun-kids-room-plaid-wall-900x1350 I also did a glitter version! (see here) floracraft-styrofoam-letters--900x705 For more Make it fun posts check out HERE
