i came across these plain foam letters at the crazy dollar store by my house (an off-brand store which, by the way has EVERYTHING! i swear it’s another dimension…) and i immediately envisioned ways of sprucing them up. they can be magnets, sure, but what’s stopping them from adorning gifts, becoming garlands, labeling photos, becoming stamps?! here is one simple project that is inexpensive and not too time consuming (because we’re SO busy, right?!)
the steps: tape the letters in interesting patterns, and spray paint in different colors. let dry completely before removing tape. you can adhere magnets to the back, or let your imagination run wild!
