Father’s Day Banner

June 2, 2014

I’m increasingly in love with fun foam sheets for a bit of quick crafting; I’ve seen some amazing stuff done with it (I do NOT do amazing stuff!) over on Pinterest, but what I do love is that is is very versatile. It works brilliantly for something rough and ready and which needs to be weather proof and then there are terrible clever people who do remarkable things like some of the crafts I’ve piunned on my Kid Craft pin board below.

I rattled this up as part of my Bostik Blogger challenge because I wanted to see how their Blu Stick works on foam sheets; it’s an ordinary glue stick which is blue on application and turns clear as it dries. It doesn’t stipulate that it can dry clear on foam, but I’m pleased to say it does. The beads are a Craft Planet mix of wooden beads, sewn on with acrylic yarn.

Might be the most organised Father's Day thing I have ever achieved

The proper sensible thing to do would be to print out large size type in the letters you need and cut out neatly; since I was crafting in the garden, I drew free hand and then stitched on the beads. You can use a fairly blunt cross stitch needle for foam, which makes it safer for small people. I think we’ll hang these up for Father’s Day – I’m sure he will appreciate it 😉
