Show your team a little love by making your own DIY Glitter Foam Finger. It’s easy!
I live in California, so it isn’t easy to find stuff for my favorite team unless it’s purchased online. (GO SEAHAWKS!) So I have to make things like this DIY Glitter Foam Finger.
These cute little Glitter Foam Fingers allow me to show support in an easy way. And they’re totally customizable to whichever team you’re supporting!
- Sharp Scissors
- Glue (I used a craft and jewelry glue with a tiny applicator tip, but anything that works on fabric will be great)
- Glitter Foam-Sheets, plain Fun Foam, and/or Felt Sheets in team colors
- Binder Clips
Click here for the link to download the template. (btw, this is my first time using dropbox for this, so I hope it works! It’s free and seems kinda cool!) Print out the template above in a 5×7-inch. Cut out the template.
Cut 1 glitter foam using the template as a guide
The glitter foam cut out
Place cut glitter foam and sheet of glitter foam with wrong sides up
Glue the wrong side of the cut foam finger around the outside
Place glued cut finger onto uncut foam sheet, and roughly cut around the outside of the sheet glitter foam.
Use binder clips to hold cut foam finger to roughly cut foam sheet. Allow glue to dry completely.
Once glue has dried completely, remove binder clips and trim rough cut sheet foam. Doing this trimming now allows you to get a closer more accurate cut to the second finger. Now is also the time to round any edges that you’d like to.
Here’s your Glitter Foam Finger all cut and glued up. You can leave it as it is for a generic foam finger. Or, you can add embellishments to it as this point.
I chose to cut a little #1 out of felt in the team colors and glue that on.
And, don’t worry about the indentations from the binder clips, they go away in a little while.
I used a little glitter foam to my the #1 on the left. It was easier to cut than the felt, but didn’t show up quite as well.
There you have it, a DIY Glitter Foam Finger to show your team support. And, this isn’t just limited to NFL. Make some for baseball, hockey, basketball, Olympics, anything!
