Festive Foam Wall Decal!

Standard

Using glitter foam sheets for Indian festival decor is the most easy, quick and cheapest option. Specially, if you are like me who always crave for new decorations 😉

Well, today I am going to share a very budget-friendly project with foam sheets that can instantly add a cultural feel.

Don’t they look pretty?? And the total cost of the project is $2 (scissors already on hand)

Material required to make these –

2 Glitter foam sheets from Hobby Lobby – 99c per sheet

Foam Scissors or Micro Serrated Scissors (Optional)

Image of your choice – the one I used is here 🙂

 Step 1  Crop the 2 elephants and take prints on regular A4 sheet

Step 2 – Trace the image on to the wrong side of the foam sheet. Best thing about foam is if you trace it hard, it will leave marks and makes it easy to cut the desired shape.

Step 3 – Cut the traced pieces using a sharp scissors or foam scissors(surrogated scissors)

Step 4 – Use a small piece of painters/masking tape on each piece of foam sheet.

That’s it – Glue the pieces referring the image.  Using a right color foam sheet ( based on the wall paint color) gives it a beautiful look 🙂

Isn’t that easy and quick.

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)

  1. Thanks Nima for all your kind words about my work;) I’ll leave one of my favorite quotes here that I apply to quilting when my students need to innovate a solution.

    “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

    -Albert Einstein
