DIY Burlap Wrapped Foam Letters #makeitfunAs part of the Make it Fun design team I was challenged to take a box of FloraCraft supplies and turn them into some fun Halloween Decor. We not only had to use the Styrofoam that was included, but somehow also include one of following: Burlap Garland, LED Light Strands, LED Lighted Branch.

I ended up making a couple of fun items that could be used inside or out and are super simple to make! Let’s take a look, shall we?

First up, I will show you how to make these super easy, and inexpensive Styrofoam Burlap Wrapped Letters:

Letter Stencils

Knife or Styrofoam Cutter


Plastic Spiders (optional)

Styrofoam Glue or Hot Glue

Foam Letters TutorialFirst, either create your own letters and print them out, or download my “E & K” Stencil. Cut them out and lay them on your styrofoam. Using a pencil, carefully trace around the stencil.

DIY Foam LettersUse a knife or styrofoam cutter to cut the letters from the sheet of foam – definitely do this outside if possible… it can get messy!

DIY Burlap Wrapped LettersNow it’s time to wrap the letters with the burlap. I folded the burlap garland in half and wrapped it around the letters, it took a bit of working to get it the way I liked. Just take your time. I used glue to secure it as I went.

DIY Burlap Wrapped LettersAfter your letters are wrapped, add plastic spiders (mine were rings – I just cut off the ring part) as desired and you are done!DIY Foam Halloween Decor Ideas
