Craft Project: Tiling With Foam Craft Sheets

Using easy to cut foam craft sheets, you can make and decorate cans, boxes, lamps, etc.


Approximate Time: 2 hours


  • foamie sheets
  • Tacky glue
  • craft knife/box cutter
  • ruler/straightedge
  • regular un-sanded grout
  • grout knife or spreader
  • various miscellaneous tools


  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.

Great idea, and I'm sure it wouldn't be as heavy as using real tiles. Thanks for sharing it with us.
