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.
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.
