Steps:

  1. Choose a pattern and press it against the foam to mark its shape in it. So I chose round since it's the easiest pattern.
  2. Colorful Retro Inspired Foam Earrings - press an object against the foam to create cutting lines
     
  3. Cut out along the markings.
  4. Colorful Retro Inspired Foam Earrings - light blue circles
     
  5. Create a smaller shape in a different color of foam. Cut it out.
  6. Colorful Retro Inspired Foam Earrings - two smaller pink circles with the larger light blue
     
  7. Find a coin which is a little bit smaller than the 2nd circle foam. Fold the foam in half and press half of the coin into the center of the foam. Cut the circle out of the center of the foam shape.
  8. Colorful Retro Inspired Foam Earrings - positioning coin on folded pink circle
