Skull frame and how to cut foam!

Sometimes cutting wood is intimidating! Or the tools are expensive! So I’ve got the next best thing! Foam! You can cut it out like wood and make amazing shapes! (check out my flamingo!) Let me show you! (and create a totally cute skull frame for Halloween!

Here is what you need:

  • Foam sheet
  • Smooth finish
  • Styrocutter plus
  • Paint


 

Watch the video to see how totally smooth the styrocutter works! It gets hot and literally cuts through the foam like BUTTER!

I just sketch out the design. 

and cut! 

Add some smooth finish…it seals in the porous holes so it’s easily painteable! 

 

After it dries, I sand it and you can do another coat to make it totally smooth (I only did one coat) and paint!

I had a spare frame laying around so I just hot glued the skull in!

A totally fun way to make and create anything your mind can dream up!
