DIY Foam Wall Decorations11:00 AM
When decorating Eli's nursery, I was looking for something to put over his crib that fit my robot theme. I was really hoping to find some gears. I did find some vinyl ones on ebay, but they were pricey and pretty limited in size and color. So I decided to make my own out of fun foam! Here is Eli's room before he was born.
|The robots are re-positional stickers I found on amazon.|
|And the gears are fun foam wall stickers I made.|
If you want to make your own fun foam wall decorations you have to first start by cutting out your shape. I used a flash light with a picture of a gear taped to it as a projector to trace my gears on my fun foam. Of course you can use a real projector or free hand it. Then cut it out.
|My shape (you can see the marks where I drew it, so this is the back).|
Lay down newspaper or trash bags and spray the back of your shape with spray adhesive. I used Elmer's brand, but I would guess most spray adhesives have a temporary bond option. That is what you want to use. For the Elmer's brand you let it sit for 3-5 minutes before applying it if you wanted a temporary bond.
Adhere to your surface by firmly pressing all over the shape.
|My little gear in its new place.|
So here is the new room; not much has changed. Bria did inform me that she didn't like the gears overlapping because it looked like they were attacking each other.
|The green gear used to be above the red one.|
|Now it has its own little wall where Eli can see it easier.|
