Step 1: Materials

3/4" or 1 " thick styrofoam
acrylic wall filler
acrylic paint/ fabric paint
Hot wire cutter/ Soldering iron
paper
pencil
carbon transfer paper

Step 2:

Write the name you want in a paper and transform it to the Styrofoam with carbon paper. Next cut it with a Hot wire cutter or soldering iron . I had my homemade table top Styrofoam cutter so no problem! for others who don't have....no problem...get a 60w soldering iron (which is cheap and just go around your letters....only don't get too close as it might burn too much!

Step 3: Cut Letters

As you can see...the styrofoam has holes....doesn't look good...
so i filled it with wall filler ...let it dry well and sanded it.

Step 4: Painting Ideas

Now paint it how you like....Here are some ideas!
Wrap it up carefully and gift it!
