Craft Foam Ornaments
When you send a handmade ornament to someone special, it says, "I'm thinking of you."
What You'll Need:
- Assorted colors of craft foam sheets
- Ballpoint pen
- Blunt scissors
- Poster paints
- Paper towels
Draw a Christmas tree shape on a sheet of green craft foam, draw a Santa Claus shape on red craft foam, and draw a candle and candleholder on yellow craft foam. Cut out all the shapes.
Use a needle to scratch in the detail on both sides of each foam shape. Rub poster paint in the scratched areas. Wipe off any excess paint with a damp paper towel.
Carefully poke a small hole in the top of each foam shape. String a piece of thread through each hole and knot the ends to make the hanger loop.
