12 Styrofoam Crafts That Will Test Your Creativity

With these styrofoam crafts we want to enable you to make it possible through enjoyment and fun to make some interesting, useful, and unique things.  You can  use materials that you already have in your home or you can buy from a DIY store for a low price.  Styrofoam is just common stretched polystyrene foam, often used for making things like cups, food trays, coolers, and different types of packaging material. DIY crafts are an excellent way to test your creativity and get you crafty.

Have you recently bought some new things? This is the easiest way to get some free samples of Styrofoam. If you were cleaning the storage room you may also find some Styrofoam that has been collecting dust for quite some time.  This kind of landfill, by its volume, is toxic to manufacture and it will last forever without breaking down. Styrofoam has a long durability and power, making it an excellent packaging material. So next time when you get a package don’t throw out those Styrofoam packing chips. Instead of throwing them away think about recycling or re-purposing it. There are some pretty cool ideas you can make using this kind of material. Try some DIY projects or programs like creating numbers and letters that can be hanged on the walls. Look for some inspiration here and get down to creating.
