1. You can paint directly onto its smooth surface without any prep! For example, I painted the surface of a 12x12 sheet of Smoothfoam with pink acrylic paint, pinned ribbon around the edge, added a 12 x 12 piece of lace scrapbook paper, photos and embellishments to create a lightweight wall hanging. Perfect in a baby's room.
These pieces were painted with Neon acrylic paint for an older child. Adding embellishments to the robots was easy. The buttons were large red brads pushed directly into the painted surface.
2. You can pin things into it without worrying that they'll fall out again! Create flower balls for Spring, birthday, shower or wedding decorations, or a topiary for the holidays. Just add small silk flowers with sequin pins.
3. You can cut it without it crumbling. Stack a small, medium and large ball together to create your very own Snowman. Cut a slice from each side of the ball then glue the flat sides together.
5. And since the holidays will shortly be upon us, how about some quick'n EZ projects to get you started. Simply cover the surface of a Smoothfoam ball with glue, then sprinkle liberally with glitter. Display on a colored charger, or in a large martini glass. You can also add gold brads, or stickers and hang with a ribbon. (Make a "u" shaped hook from a paper clip to hold the ribbon and hanger in place.) Like I said, EZ PZ Quick'n EZ and sure to add a special sparkle to your holidays.
