So, what do you do when an old styrofoam cooler is about to get thrown out? Use as much of it as possible for some crafty projects, duh!
We were cleaning out our closet and ruthlessly throwing things away when we happened upon this styrofoam cooler that was very nifty but rarely used. Hating to throw styrofoam away, I put it aside with the intentions of using as much as possible in some projects.
For the first of many projects, I decided to make some letters (more accurately, an H and ampersand). I printed templates out, taped them down and used a knife to carve them out.
I decided to use some beautiful paper scraps I had (which I have plenty of because I have a problem with throwing away scraps of pretty paper) to decoupage the H.
An easy-peasy, cheap, upcycled project! Stay tuned because there's more styrofoam where that came from...way more. Perhaps there may be some paper mache-ing involved...and a frame or two...who knows.
