How to Make a Styrofoam Cushion for Military Medals

In this instructable you will learn how to make a great item with very simple supplies and tools. A great gift for any military vet. SO go ahead and break old tools and get ready to make.

Step 1: Tools

For this simple project you will need the following:

pliers with cutters

Camouflage t-shirt
Paper clips

* The stapler and glue is only for emergency situations :)

Step 2: Start Cuttin'

This step is probably the easiest step. All you have to do is take your knife and cut the Styrofoam in a square piece a little bigger than the medals and then cut out a square in the T-shirt a little larger than the Styrofoam piece.

Step 3: Get Paperclippin'

Now wrap the t-shirt piece over the styrofoam. once you have it where you want it take paper clips and cut and bend them to where you can use them as "stakes" to hold the fabric in place.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Now just simply put your medals on the cushion
