2 Comments

Foam, shapes and curling ribbon can now be turned into a great craft. These colorful mod cubes can be used as an ornament and a home decoration. It's a fun kids' craft as well and can be finished in three easy steps.

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cube, 3"
  • Coordinating curling ribbon
  • Craft foam, colors of choice: sheets; pre-cut shapes (optional)
  • Compass or small circle template (optional)
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Extra-long straight pins (optional)
  • Thick, white craft glue

Steps:

(Note: Closely supervise young children with scissors, or cut pieces for them.)

 

  1. Use sharp pencil to trace opposite sides of foam cube onto back of one craft foam sheet; cut out and glue to cube. Repeat for remaining sides, using second craft foam color. Repeat for top and bottom. Trim excess at cube edges. Pin corners to secure; let dry. Remove pins.
     
  2. Refer to photo to glue pre-cut or hand-cut geometric shapes such as circles, squares and stripes to cube sides; let dry.
     
  3. Use scissors point to poke small hole in one cube corner. Cut 6" length from curling ribbon; knot ends to form hanging loop. Glue knot into hole; let dry. If desired, tie second ribbon length into bow with curled ends; glue to base of hangers.

Cool idea and I never would have thought of a cube as an ornament. Kids would love to do this fun project! As another option, I could see turning these cubes into prettily wrapped Christmas present ornaments, with added bows and ribbons embellishing the sides and top and hanging them in the tree.thesenwould also make a cute little package topper alongside or in place of a bow or ribbon, and becomes a part of the gift too! Fun idea, asks for sharing!

easy to do with kids
