Styrofoam JOY

Styrofoam JOY

In this week’s One Month To Win It competition the theme was Styrofoam.  The Styrofoam company has so many product options that I had a hard time deciding what to make. I wandered around the store carrying several Styrofoam cones and spheres, but I finally settled on a small wreath.

Deco Art sent me some of their MagiKote.  You spread it on styrofoam and it makes it solid so you can paint it….so cool!  I just had to try them together.

I used a small biscuit cutter to make circles in the Styrofoam wreath.

Then I used a knife to carve a little more around the circles.

I wasn’t sure at this point if it would look weird.  I hoped not, but so much of what I make looks weird that I didn’t have high hopes.

After spreading the MagiKote on and letting it dry, then putting on another coat….it was ready to paint.  I can’t show you pictures of painting it because it was so late by the time I got to it that I was spray painting in the dark.  Once that was dry I got the girls to paint the circles with white craft paint.  What can I say?  I was tired.

We cut out Cricut letters for either side, tied a ribbon at the top and it was ready to hang.

It was after 10:00 PM when I took the pictures, so the light is bad.  But I really like it.  It is very….um….joyful.

I hope you’ll go over to One Month To Win It and vote for your favorite Styrofoam project.
