Paint them, glitter them, burnish them, crackle them, cover them with washi tape – spelling is more fun with Smoothfoam!

Who says you can only hang ornaments on a Christmas tree? We love to see ornaments made with everyday materials like cording, paper, buttons, yarn and fabric scraps.

DIY bulletin boards don’t have to be made with cork – have you ever tried Smoothfoam sheets, discs and blocks?

Smoothfoam balls are so fun to paint and embellish for using as beads in jewelry and accessories. Whether you work with the tiniest 3/4″ diameter or the larger 1.5″ size, they are lightweight enough to wear comfortably as earrings and necklaces. Plus they float, so they make perfect beads for key fobs and sunglass holders for all you water sports fans. If you like to sell your own handmade jewelry, Smoothfoam blocks, rods and sheets can be painted or covered to create custom jewelry display forms.
