Floracraft Sprinkles sign!

It’s time for another Floracraft® make it fun challenge! I sure love them cause it pushes me out to make something totally creative that I wouldn’t normally make!

  fun summer wood signs made with floracraft #makeitfun craft foam a girl and a glue gun

Here’s what I got:

• FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Cones
• FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Cutter
• FloraCraft Smooth Finish® floracraft supplies

The cones are super fun….and I instantly thought of ice cream cones! cause that screams summer!!! I took a foam ball leftover from HERE


and the foam cutter…which works so great! it was easy peasy to cut the cone and ball in half!

cut through foam Then I added some Smooth Finish. Can I get a minute to rave.

This stuff is AWESOME. it’s super light..like you think the jar is empty…but it’s not. You rub it on the foam and it fills in all the little nooks and crannies. I used two coats and sanded in between. It’s freakin awesome. the end. foam finish make it smooth Between coats of Smooth Finish I added some lines to the cone to make it look like a waffle cone. Because those are the best kind to eat!

I actually added some hot glue in between to make it look like the ice cream was overlapping the cone.


And then I wanted to add some topping. I turned again to my adtech hot glue gun and made some chocolate drizzle and sprinkles! glue gun and painted after they dried. (this is the cherry on top…A super small foam ball!) I know in this picture it looks totally weird…

topping for ice cream but when it’s all hot glued on the top…it looks so cool!  ice cream cone out of foam

and then everything got added into my frame/sign I built

attach frame and stuck on a vinyl saying I made using Expressions Vinyl expressions vinyl I don’t’ know if you have used transfer tape before with vinyl…but it makes it so you can move the whole word in one kabang instead of peeling and sticking each individual letter! It’s a sanity saver!  transfer tape

My sign is all done..so cute…and it speaks the truth…cause life IS better with sprinkles. life is better with sprinkles


I also made a family sign…I only used one light coat of smooth finish…so you can see the texture a bit more. family sign made with foam
