Craft Foam Visor
|Make a wearable craft foam visor using our visor template and have fun decorating it with a variety of materials.|
- Small craft materials such as beads and wiggle eyes are choking hazards. These are not suitable for children below the age of three.
- Watch out for this sign . It means adult help is needed for the particular step.
|1.||Print out this visor template on A4 or Letter size paper.|
|2.||Cut out the template and trace around it on craft foam.|
|3.||Mark the holes on the craft foam as well.|
|4.||Cut out the craft foam visor.|
|5.||Punch the pair of holes on either side of your craft foam visor.|
|6.||Gather materials that you could decorate your visor with. You can go with ready-made decorations such as stickers or pre-cut foam shapes. And of course you can also cut out your own shapes from craft foam, felt or fabric.|
|7.||Add details to these shapes by any or a combination of the following:
a.) Paint on the shapes with undiluted acrylic paint. Cotton swabs are great for painting dots and lines.
|b.) Draw lines and details using permanent markers, glitter glue or puffy paint.|
|c.) Glue smaller shapes out of craft foam, felt or fabric.|
|8.||As an added option, you can paint on background details on your visor.|
|9.||Once everything has thoroughly dried, you can finally glue the decorations onto your visor.|
|10.||Cut a piece of elastic band to a length of about 10 to 12 inches. Insert the ends of the elastic band through the opposite holes on the visor, knotting each end from the inner side of the visor. Try on the visor and adjust the length of the elastic if necessary.|
|Instead of knotting the ends of the elastic band, you can sew them around the holes for an extra-sturdy visor.|
|11.||Your visor would be a fantastic way to shade yourself from the summer sun. Enjoy!|
|Create spring-themed visors that kids can wear while helping out in the garden or taking spring walks with the whole family.
When decorating your visor with large cut-outs, use craft foam, felt or fabric that are thin enough to conform to your visor's curved shape. Material that is too thick will stiffen and deform the visor.
|You can make craft foam visors when attending games, parades or field trips. Use your country's flag colors for national celebrations, your school or city colors when cheering for your favorite team (you can even write the team name on your visor), or write your school's name when going on a field trip.|
|Cut-outs too tedious? This easy character visor was decorated by gluing pompoms for the eyes and nose while the mouth was drawn using a black permanent marker. A terrific idea for making fun hats for a themed birthday party!|
