Instructions

  1. Measure and mark to divide 11 7/8″ side of foam block into three sections, each approx. 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″. Use Foam Cutter to cut along marked lines. In well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, spray foam blocks on all sides and edges with two coats Purple spray color. Let dry.
  2. Select papers for “SPOOKY” letters. Turn over chipboard letters and place on wrong side of papers. Use pencil to trace each letter. Use small scissors to cut out and glue stick to attach to chipboard letters. Position purple blocks on their edges. Use three layers of small pieces foam mounting tape to attach in a couple of places on back of each letter. Attach covered letters to fronts of purple blocks according to photo. Hot glue wiggle eyes to bottoms of O’s. Pull lengths of spider webs and stretch across each block. Hot glue spiders as shown.
  3. On computer type child’s names and year in an open font (that allows filling in with color and a point size that will be close to 3/4″ high letters.) Print on copy paper to check size. Then print on white cardstock. Use small scissors to generally cut around name and year. Then go back and more precisely cut 1/8″ away from edge.
  4. Fill in letters and numbers with orange colored pencil. Use paper punch to make small hole at top center of each. (Note: For multiple children, simply add more names on wires.)
  5. Use wire cutter to cut black wire into two 12″ lengths. One at a time, wrap each around a pencil to curl. Remove pencil and gently stretch and slightly scrunch wire to make irregular. Similarly wrap and scrunch green wire. Refer to photo. Insert each wire into top of middle block. Wrap end of green wire into spiral and insert photo. Insert year and name onto black wires, creating a small curl on the ends to hold. (Tip: Adjust wires as needed to position photo and words where desired.)
