I usually make mini foam tombstones for people to put on their desks around Halloween time, but I thought I'd try something related to Christmas. It's nice to personalize your space and show your holiday spirit.
I did two different versions of this, both with EPS foam (the type made of compressed foam beads). The main version is easily done by someone with a serrated knife and the second was sculpted with a hot knife.
Step 1: Supplies
-Small amount of EPS foam
-Appropriate glue for foam
-3/4 inch PVC pipe (I used a piece approximately 13 inches long)
-White spray paint (Suitable for painting plastic)
-Red spray paint
-Mod Podge sealer/glue (I used the gloss version)
-Plastic Christmas Tree ornament (Bought a bunch at Dollar Tree for 50% off after Xmas- you never know when you'll need a round object for a craft)
-Glue suitable for attaching the Christmas ornament to the PVC pipe
-Saw or PVC pipe cutter
-Knife for cutting/shaping foam (Hot Wire cutting tool optional)
-Clear spray or brush-able sealant
-Latex gloves for spray painting
