Instructions:

  1. Cut foam sheets into 1/2 inch squares. Use the ruler and carefully cut a piece of foam into half inch strips, then turn strips and cut into 1/2 inch squares.
  2. Glue squares and any lettering or artwork unto a recycled tin can.
  3. After drying overnight, grout the gaps with the plain, white, un-sanded grout.
  4. Clean up any grout left on the "tiles" so that you have only the foam squares and grout lines showing.
  5. Use a water based varnish or coating, seal the grout and tiles with 2 or more coats.

Use cans as pencil holders, brush caddies, or other office/craft supplies. Small boxes can be covered to look like ceramic planters to hold plants and or flowers.

There are lots of foam shapes that you can use. You pick one out and then poke two holes or cut two small holes in each side. Pick a matching yarn, and then beads to go on the yarn, and then you have a cute little necklace.
